Rhincodon typus
Whale Shark is the largest fish. Its a harmless, filter-feeder. The baitfish form a tight school around the whale shark as refuge from predators, in this instance from Jacks / Travally (Caranx sp.) which were attempting to feed on the baitfish.

EDITORS COMMENTS
Witness the awe-inspiring sight of a Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) surrounded by a bait ball at Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia. This gentle giant, the largest fish in the sea, is a harmless filter-feeder, and the baitfish form a tight school around it as a protective barrier from predators, such as Jacks and Travally (Caranx sp.), which were attempting to feed on them. The Whale Shark's size and power are on full display in this image, as it effortlessly moves through the water, with the masses of smaller fish swirling around it. The contrast between the large and small creatures creates a stunning visual effect, showcasing the diversity and complexity of the marine ecosystem. This photograph by Douglas David Seifert is a testament to the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
