Kahala the Almaco Jack.

When out diving in Hawaiian waters you may see a very- large, four-foot-long, silver-colored fish go by, which is not too unusual as we have some big fish species that live in fairly shallow water. Most of these big fish are rather shy and if you are lucky to see one it is usually darting off into the deep blue sea but kahala is different!
