School of AKULE or Big-Eye Scad (Selar crumenophthalmus) - ©Bo Pardau
Akule is a fish highly appreciated by the local Kona, Hawaii residents and divers.
Akule schools can concentrate over a thousand fish, and have become one  of underwater photographers’ favorite subjects.
Bo Pardau has  managed to get some spectacular shots of Akule schools, like the one we  reproduce today.
Akule fish pack up in a tight formation as a defensive  strategy against the many natural predators that endanger the species.
Sadly, we have to count human beings as part of this group. Click through to see more.
So far the Akule school is still intact and no one has attempted to  recapture them yet. There is an ongoing investigation into the coral  reef damage, and let’s hope that it progress is a fair and just manner.
The Kona Underwater Photographic Society has been trying to keep an eye on the school and do what they can  legally to protect them and the coral, although it is legal to capture  this beautiful school with a proper permit.
