Bib on wreck, Underwater Photographer of the Year - February 2021

Highly Commended in Living Together category
My shot of a shoal of bib, also called pouting (Trisoperus luscus), is from the wreck of the James Egan Layne, Whitsand Bay, Plymouth.

The picture was entered in the 2021 Underwater Photographer of the Year competition. A relatively easy shot to take with the main challenge getting to the site when underwater visibility was half decent. These are common wreck fish and are always to be found in the forward hold of the wreck.
