The eleven minute video is filled with many wonderful underwater footage of WW2 wreck diving, “flying” Crinoids, battling parrotfish, dancing sexy shrimps, mandarins in their natural habitat, gobies galore, and much more. Solomon Island fish, corals, and occasional live rock are exported for the aquarium trade so many of the video’s “stars” will be familiar to reefkeepers. The Solomon Islands have made significant strides towards sustainability with better monitoring and training thanks to increased funding.
The Destination Reefs video series showcases the diversity of coral reefs from around the world. Through these high quality videos, Advanced Aquarist hopes we can all gain a greater appreciation of reef life beyond our glass boxes.
