Very large extended shoal / Fish ball (100s of thousands of individuals) of small silvery fish. Identification of such shoals is very difficult underwater but they are most likely to be Silversides, Herrings or Anchovies, of the families Atherinidae, Clupeidae or Engraulididae respectively. The fish ball is shown in partial silhouette against the surface off the reef opposite the Americans House, Playa Americano, Isla Blanquilla, Venezuela
