A pair of palometas (Trachinotus goodei) photographed July 15, 2019 on island of Bonaire. They can be seen as far north as Massachusetts and as far south at Argentina. Sometimes also referred to as “long fin “Pompano. These slender fish glide with an air of pride through the corals. They are not intimidated by divers or snorkelers. It is not the type of creature that stops and poses to have its picture taken but is curious enough to swim along and observe visitors to the reef.
