Destination Reefs: Fiji
Fiji is in the South Pacific east of Australia. Located just outside the Coral Triangle, Fiji's reefs teem with life; Fiji's biodiversity and density rivals any coral reef in the world. It's little wonder that these reefs are popular collection sites for the aquarium trade.
I apologize for the non-HD videos this week, but I think you'll still find the footage quite amazing. What stands out to me is the sheer number of azooxanthellate (non-photosynthetic) corals sharing prime shallow water real estate with SPS corals. Fiji is often referred to as the Soft Coral Capital of the World ... a well earned distinction!
The Destination Reefs video series showcases the diversity of coral reefs 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. Our world is truly a wondrous place!
Here's a bonus snorkeling video by Tui Tai Expeditions, further testifying to Fiji's amazing reef life.
