Dry Tortugas National Park 2019: Jack, 18 - "Trunkfish"
This uniquely shaped fish is closely related to the more well known puffer-fish. They linger near the bottom in shallow waters and are one of the more eye-catching species of the reef, despite their subdued coloration.
About Jack: Jack graduated from Northwest Passage in the fall of 2017. While a resident at Northwest Passage, Jack participated in Under the Surface venturing to the rivers and lakes of Northwest Wisconsin. He dove and photographed the sea caves on Devils Island at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and came nose to nose with a four foot long sturgeon while photographing the underwater world of the St. Croix River. Jack has continued to pursue his passion for the underwater world since leaving Northwest Passage through snorkeling and SCUBA. Jack graduated from high school this spring and is looking forward to the next chapter.
