Marc Montocchio is USA based professional photographer. Big pelagic action in the blue water is his passion, his work has been published internationally in a variety of publication and other media.  Marc started diving in South Africa in 1986 and after leaving school joined the South African Navy as a diver. Before turing pro in 1996 Marc worked as a scuba instructor diving and fishing his way around the world.

This striped marlin image was taken off the Pacific coast of Baja Mexico. Annually, striped marlin congregate to feed on schools of sardines. "Jumping in the water around the bait ball put me right in the middle of 40 to 50 marlin and sea lions in a fantastic feeding frenzy!"  See more of Marc's marlin images at www.marcmontocchio.com.
