    Trawling for Tuna...

    by kenmerk Updated May 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When cruising out to the dive sites, throw a line or two into the water... You might get lucky and snag a tuna or two... Trust me, there is nothing like some tuna sashimi fresh from the deep after a day of diving... (with a few cocktails throw in the mix, that is...)

    The Chuukese Flounder

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Careful around Chuukese Flounder Fish. Although not common on Pohnpei, they are known to lie around in wait, and then pounce on your beers in the cooler while you are otherwise occupied underwater....

    Don't challenge the clown fish. They can be quite territorial... (Tough little guys of the deep, they are.....)

    Didn't see so many jellyfish in Pohnpei, but here's one big one we ran across... (Didn't get the chance to ask him if he was dangerous or not....)

    Pohnpei Sharks

    Lots of our toothy friends can be found in the waters around the Island. (Good for photo ops, but bad for air consumption rates)
