'take a breath' explores both the thrill and a smattering of the science associated with breath-hold diving, but it is definitely not a ‘How-To’ guide. Indeed, some of the exploits described could be viewed as risky bordering on downright stupid, so 'How-Not-To' is a more accurate description.

All Puffed Up

Puffers are a group of fish I like to shoot, especially the big ones. They have a shy, jovial personality. At least they always look like they are smiling. Puffers are related to boxfish, and are also toxic, but in a different way. I found references to two toxins, tetrodotoxin (TTX) and saxitoxin (STX), which are nerve agents. They are chemically distinct, but act on the nervous system similarly.
File this Fish with the Shy Group

Filefish have a protruding mouth with some very sharp teeth, similar to a triggerfish. They have narrow, compressed bodies with rough spiny scales and a front dorsal fin that can be raised or lowered. When the fin is raised, it resembles a file, which some reference sources say is the inspiration for the name. Filefish are another group of highly entertaining critters on the reef.

All in all, snook demonstrate a great comeback for an iconic species with some protection in place, the positive effect of spillover from protection as a fishery management technique, and the importance of protecting diverse habitats to ensure the transition of juveniles to the adult population.
Hogfish Heaven?

Hogfish got their name because they root around the sea floor, like a hog roots around the barnyard. I have been following the size limit discussions for the last several years, and to me the essential point is this: if we don’t increase the size limit and let them grow another year or two, the chances of maintaining a sustainable fishery may be a huge issue in the future.
