Chevron Barracuda; Sphyraena qenie

Chevron Barracuda are most often seen when scuba diving at Sail Rock, but it’s possible at most dive sites in the Koh Phangan area.

Like all the members of this family they have long slender bodies with widely separated dorsal fins.

They can be distinguished from our other barracudas by their medium size and 18-22 oblique dark bars (those are the chevrons). They also have a tendency to swim in especially close formation as shown in the video to the right.
