Tropical fish caught in Bristol Channel

An almaco jack (Seriola rivoliana) has been caught 5 miles off Lundy island in what might be another sign of climate change. This species is normally found in warmer waters, such as near Florida and the Caribbean. There is speculation if a colony is establishing itself in the Bristol Channel.  The species is known for rubbing itself against passing sharks – and divers – to remove skin parasites.
