MAG­NIF­I­CENT MOLA MOLA

Scuba Diver Australasia - - Contents - By Mar­cello Di Francesco

Out­landish, mys­te­ri­ous and very, very big; meet­ing these mas­sive denizens of the deep is a rare treat

It’s only pos­si­ble to meet an­gler­fish in the Mediter­ranean Sea dur­ing spring, as, once the wa­ter starts to warm up, they head into the depths.

This spec­i­men, mea­sur­ing al­most a me­tre-and-a-half, was an in­cred­i­ble sub­ject to pho­to­graph – calm, so­cia­ble and not at all in­tim­i­dated by divers.
