Yellowtail 24kg — Tim Theunissen

Yellowtail

I shot this lovely fish whilst boat diving off Tweed Heads 1998. (Border of NSW and Queensland- Australia) Large yellowtail are quite plentiful in this area, but unbeknown to me at the time, they carry a parasite in their flesh, making them inedible. Nevertheless, its fighting ability was certainly not jeopardized by the parasite and the fish towed me around a while.
