Snapper Spawn

A 3.5 minute film filmed in the turquoise waters of Palau, this spectacular short film directed by Dr Brad Erisman from Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Alfredo Barroso a world class videographer from Mexico brings to the world stage the mysterious and fragile phenomenon of Two-Spot Red Snapper aggregating to spawn in their thousands - it's a brief insight into their fascinating world.

...during a recent SCRFA expedition, Brad and Alfredo witnessed and filmed using high definition cameras this spectacular fish spawning aggregation. Not only an incredible experience for Brad and Alfredo, but one of only a few opportunities each year for these fish to gather and create the next generation of fish.
