Trigger Happy - Titan triggerfish Koh Bon Pinnacle

Titan triggerfish, Balistoides viridescens, SEE & SEE DX8000G, Koh Bon Pinnacle, Similan Islands

Category: - underwater
  
Photographer: - view all photos of Ric Parker
Location:Similan Islands Thailand
Dive Site:Koh Bon Pinnacle
  
Description:Although usually wary of divers, during mating season Titan triggerfish are known to agressively guard their nests. The triggerfish will face the intruder, the dorsal spine will rise and the fish may roll onto its side for better vision. Titan triggerfish are well known to be agressive around Koh Tao, not so much around the Similan Islands. When faced with an agressive triggerfish it is best to swim away from the nest on your back and put your fin up if the fish attacks. They can inflict serious injury.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS:

simply the best!

"Having visited the area half a dozen times and diving with various companies I have to say Thailand Dive & Sail was the best by far. Clive and Ric really made my holiday one to remember. Allthough I was traveling alone after day one I felt like I was with friends, they kept up a great atmosphere onboard throughout the whole trip making each day a special one. Their knowledge of marine life and all the dive sites was very impressive, taking a look through my logbook at past trips I realised other companies had missed out on some of the best diving and failed to find the most sought after marine life (I guess through lack of experience, which Clive and Ric have in abundance). As well as the great diving and fun on board it was refreshing to see a company who doesn't just claim to be ECO friendly to attract customers but actually puts their time and efforts in to making a difference (check out their See&Sea campaign for the Moken people). What really did it for me was their scheduling of dives to avoid the crowds. We had the busiest sites all to our selves rather than diving through clouds of bubbles and divers, just through some smart planning and seemless organisation. No question about it these are the guys to dive with out there!"
