On Saturday, I was doing work at the bow of FOC when I spotted something odd floating in the water. At first I thought it was a squashed breadfruit that had somehow ended up in the water, but the color was all wrong and it was moving!
View looking down from ship:
I went down to the pier to have a closer look.
By FOC’s hull:
As it got nearer, I saw it was a frogfish (Commerson’s?) that was inflated and floating upside down:
It was propelling itself by squirting water out of its gill openings and moving its fins and tail. It looked like it was unable to deflate and right itself, so I felt rather sorry for it.
