Get Involved in Some Seriously Fishy Fashion!

No matter whether you’re talking about butterflyfish, lionfish, parrotfish or whale sharks – fish are incredible creatures living in a mysterious realm of which we have much to learn. While living and working in the Fiji Islands I was fortunate enough to do a great deal of snorkeling and scuba diving.
