Caption

Spawning rush of sailfin snapper (Symphorichthys spilurus). Darker males chase the lighter female as she makes a dash away from the main shoal, both releasing gametes before returning to the aggregation. The males also have more scarring and scale damage on their flanks. Whether this is intraspecific competition or predation escape is unknown. These fish form the spawning aggregations on only a few days a year, typically from March to June on the days before a New Moon. Filmed at Peleliu, Palau, on 6th April 2021.
