A diver was caught up in a tornado of FISH in these incredible pictures.
Tori Hester, 25, was diving in Cabo Pulmo, Mexico, when the school of Trevally fish arrived and she was surrounded by hundreds of flapping fins.
Her husband Jeff, 26, was on hand to capture the incredible moment on his underwater camera.
Jeff, a marine scientistisfrom San Diego, California, said: “We arrived in Cabo Pulmo, a tiny town made up of dirt roads with a population right around 100, not really sure what to expect, but had heard some pretty amazing stories about the place.
“We were swimming along and saw a small band of Jacks heading away from us, so we followed them.
“That small band slowly grew bigger and bigger, until out of the distance, this massive fish tornado appeared.
“I was awe-struck. I had never seen anything like that before in my life.
“It was such a productive ecosystem, with not only a large quantity of fish, but a wide diversity of organisms as well. I believe this is what our oceans should look like, this is why I was I was drawn to make this image.
“Cabo Pulmo hasn’t always been this way though.
“In 1995, a marine park was established by local citizens to counteract depleted reef fishes and marine life due to overfishing.
“Today, the biomass is booming, and the ecosystem is returning to a healthy state which is how we managed to witness this incredible sight.”
