During a Navy flight survey around the island of Moorea (French Polynesia) on 18 February 2014, a massive aggregation of striated surgeonfish (Ctenochaetus striatus) surrounded by a minimum of 60 blacktip reef sharks (Carcharhinus melanopterus) was photographed (Fig. 1a). This aggregation ofC. striatuswas observed at 1500 h in the western lagoon close to the pass of the barrier reef (S17 34¢28†W149 52¢09†) and occurred during an ebbing tide, 3 days following a full moon (15 February 2014).
