Tautog "Sneaker" Male

GoPro footage documenting a subadult male tautog (Tautoga onitis) courting a larger female in front of an oyster cage. "Sneaker males" are fish that are not the largest or strongest, but still manage to pass on their genes by being in the right place at the right time. Credit: NOAA Fisheries/Milford Laboratory
