British Indian Ocean Territory – underwater

ABOUT

British Indian Ocean Territory – underwater

This mini-documentary explores the marine life of the coral reefs of the British Indian Ocean Territory. These reefs lie within the largest fully protected marine reserve on Earth, and due to their remoteness, they are widely regarded as the most intact coral ecosystem on the planet. The lack of commercial fishing allows the survival of the greatest densities of fish in all of the Indian Ocean. And the natural diversity is staggering, over one quarter of all reef fishes worldwide occur in the British Indian Ocean Territory, as well as endemic fish and coral species that occur nowhere else.
