Underwater Bigeye trevally fish tornado in Baja California Sur

This underwater fish tornado appears to be a swarm of Bigeye trevally or Jureles in Cabo Pulmo Reef, Baja California Sur. It was filmed by Liquid Productions‘ underwater director, videographer, and photo instructor Becky Kagan Schott. She writes, “A biomass of thousands of fish so great they create this fish tornado. It’s one of of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced underwater!”

Schott was interviewed about her adventurous and sometimes dangerous job at DiverMag.com. You can also see more of her work on YouTube.

We’ve seen this type of Bigeye trevally swarm before in Octavio Aburto’s famous photograph for National Geographic. Plus: Watch more fish swarm videos.
