Diving with thousands of Snappers/Irezumi fuedai (OSCAR)


Oscar here doing the topics for todays diving in Palau.

March been a busy month for sure and as we are reaching the end of the month we have a lot of people coming to Palau to besides from doing the regular amazing dive sites like Blue Corner and German Channel also wants to experience something even more unique. March is a great month to dive in Palau since there are many rare events to be seen in Palau during this period. To mention a few; Red Snapper/ Barafuedai Spawning, Buffalo fish/ Kanmuri Budai spawning, Yellow lined sea-bream/Irezumi fuedai and much more.

One of the big highlights of March in Palau is for sure the Blue Lined Sea-Bream/Irezumi Fuedai in Peleliu. A fish who usually lives solitary but during a few month each year in Palau, gets together in massive schools to spawn. At the “Yellow Wall” today we could witness huge numbers of this fish. Estimation by Seichii was at least 7000 of the Blue-Lined Sea-Bream/Irezumi Fuedai. It is a special experience for sure, to be caught up in the middle of a school of thousands of this colorful and beautiful fish.

Thank you for reading this short summary of today´s diving.
