Sounds appropriate enough to me. If someone has no idea what the specie is, they have no business killing it-period.

Mola are one of the most curious and docile fish in the sea. As you know, they will approach your boat just to have a look...

They are also a fish that usually has visible tan lines!

They allow sea gulls to land on them, groom them and walk around a bit.

They use jet propulsion when they need to move out fast.

They are one of a handful of creatures that can attain a weight of over a thousand pounds, but have never harmed a human.

Maybe someday we will advance to the point where some species such as the Torpedo Ray, Mola, Swell shark and others are simply not-for-take species. Or at least have people take a test before getting that license to kill.

Protect that which you value!
