Grate Barracuda

Sphyraena barracuda


Photo take at -35 ft in a Caribbean reef. The great barracuda has a long, streamlined body with the second dorsal fin set far back near the tail. This fin arrangement, along with a large, powerful tail, allows it to stalk its prey and then accelerate forward at great speed.


In the Atlantic coast of tropical America from North Carolina , Gulf of México all the Caribbean to Brazil.


Eating even small amounts of barracuda can result in ciguatera poisoning, caused by toxins accumulated from its food.
