Mola Photo ID


Sunfish have intricate skin patterns, unique to each individual.

The citizen science project Match My Mola! was launched in 2013 to collect and curate new and existing sunfish images (photos and video) from the Bali area, where Giant Sunfish (Mola alexandrini) frequent the reefs during August - November in search of cleaner-fish services.

The below is a tiny snippet of the full offline Bali Mola ID Catalogue with over 1,000 individuals and counting!

To contribute mola photos and/or videos go to Match My Mola! - if you want your sunfish to appear here then make sure to let us know! We only upload photos here with the permission of the photographer.
