 Ocean Sunfish or Mola mola Under Drift Kelp

Several juvenile Molas being cleaned by Medialuna, under drift kelp. This is a classic mid summer kelp patty off Southern California. The drift kelp forms an open ocean oasis for marine life. Large amounts of baitfish recruit around the patch which then attracts still larger species of fish, including Molas, gamefish such as Yellowtail and Dorado as well as sharks.
