Description: A Blue Shark, also known as the Blue Whaler or Blue Pointer, cruising in the vastness of the open ocean in the South Pacific. Note the accompanying Pilotfish, which feed on scraps from the shark’s messy feeding behaviour – a hazardous symbiosis. The pilotfish also feed on parasites of the shark, providing a useful service.
