Diver amongst a school of shrimpfish (Aeoliscis strigatus) on the wreck of the Shinwa Maru. These fish hover vertically above black coral bushes or on the sand bottom, where they feed on minute crustaceans which are sucked up using their long jaws. The Shinwa Maru was a large cargo ship shrunk during World War Two, whilst carrying tanks and munitions to the Japanese occupation forces at Manokwari. Photographed in Manokwari, West Papua in Indonesia, Asia.
