HALFBEAK | BALLYHOO
Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Belize

A small school of Ballyhoo feeds on floating seagrass in Belize. Tucked up tight to the surface, drifting with currents and blending into the colors. If you look closely you see they are tipped with lots of color and have a unique lower jaw.

SEA SERPENT | GREEN MORAY EEL
Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Belize

Hol Chan is also the habitat of a large moray eel population. With 5 different morays, the Green Moray is the largest specie of Moray eels. It’s been said the green moray is not green in color it’s actually brown. The yellow tint of the mucus that covers its body, along with the drab background color, gives the fish its characteristic uniform green color.

A SCHOOL OF HORSE EYE JACKS
Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Belize

This image was taken in the Hol Chan marine reserve off the coast of Belize. Hol Chan is Mayan for “little Channel”. The reserve is home to over 160 species of fish, along with nearly 40 species of corals, 5 sponges, 8 algae, 2 sea grasses, 3 marine mammals and 3 species of endangered sea turtles… and giant schools of fish!  After a long tough battle, the reserve was established in July 1987 and enforcement of the regulations began in 1989.
