CONTENTS Winter 2016 Features 68 FIJI: SOFT CORAL CAPITAL OF THE WORLD A LIVEABOARD TREK THROUGH THE BLIGH WATER Text and photos by Stephen Frink Nourished by Pacific currents, Fijian reefs are vivid and lush. And thanks to minimal diver impact and an almost 20-yearold marine reserve, they teem with life, insulated from the tides of time. 76 CENDERAWASIH BAY THE GALÁPAGOS OF THE EAST Text and photos by Michael Aw Most well known as a haven for whale sharks, Indonesia’s Cenderawasih Bay is an “evolutionary cauldron” — an ancient sea with an extraordinary number of fish and coral species found nowhere else on the planet. ON THE COVER: A large school of chevron barracuda (Sphyraena genie) is typically resident at “The Arch” in Fiji’s Namena Marine Reserve. Stephen Frink took this photo using a Canon EOS 5DS with a Sigma 50mm macro lens in a Seacam housing and compact dome port, Seacam Seaflash 150 and Ikelite DS161 strobes, with an exposure of 1/80 sec. @ f/14, ISO 320. THIS PAGE: Butterflyfish, like this one at the Namena Marine Reserve in Fiji, have long snouts and other specialized anatomic features to facilitate feeding among the crevices and indentations of the coral reef.
