Group of cobia fish (Rachycentron canadum) resting on the seabed, moving away as the camera approaches. This fish lacks a swim bladder, and feeds on crabs and smaller fish and squid. It is usually solitary, but forms aggregations to spawn. It can reach up to two metres in length. It is an excellent food fish, and a candidate for fish farming. Filmed off the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
