These jacks (Caranx sexfasciatus) are a mainstay and one of the
top attractions in Balicasag Island, Bohol, Philippines . They can
sometimes be found 45 meters down, on top of the reef, or just
beside the wall like in this photo. Balicasag is a marine protected
area and a no take zone, which allows big schools like this to
thrive and flourish.
