BIOT MPA Reef Fish from Jon Slayer on Vimeo.

The British Indian Ocean Territory Marine Protected Area contains tens of thousands of square kilometers of shallow reef habitat amongst the atolls of the Chagos Archipelago. It is the most biodiverse area of the United Kingdom and her overseas territories. This is evident amongst the fish where there are more than 800 recorded species. The shallow coral reefs are particularly colorful and varied in their fish life.
