It takes several scuba dives to come across something special like the Centropgye nahackyi. Unfortunately through facebook and other forms of social media, it was captured and most likely sold on the market within a few weeks after being found. I found this greatly disappointing as it was a beautiful and amazing fish..
So lessons learned, next time pictures stay on the computer...
Dive opportunities have taken me from South point of the Big Island, to Kure atoll in the North West Hawaiian Islands and several islands in between. I have to say, each island offers a different dive experience
