Black Coral Fishing
Keeping with the fish theme from yesterday’s post, here’s a shot from the black coral beaches near Trinidad, Cuba. I happened upon a collection of these fish seemingly stranded atop the reef after the tide went out. My friends came upon these sad looking fish a little later, floating half dead in the depleting pool and decided to rescue a couple. They got a few back into the Caribbean before realizing a local fella was pulling them out of the sea and keeping them alive in these tiny pools. Ooops! He either didn’t notice, or didn’t care, and probably had a small chuckle to himself. After all, there were plenty of fish in that sea, with the rich coral reef and protected shores of the Cuban coastline. The underwater world here was spectacular.
