I believe Mola-Mola(Ocean sunfish) are in Bali's waters year round ( recorded as deep as as 360 M)but generally only come up to recreation diving depths July to mid-November.
Mola-Mola are the world's heaviest bony fish,can be 3,5m high,reach 2,300kg,and have up to 300 millon eggs.You can see their unusual shape in this photo ( mola is latin for ' millstone')...and believe it or not,their closet relatives are pufferfish,porcupinefish and filefish.
Their diet,like that of turtles,is mainly jellyfish hence plastic bags can be hazardous.
Up to 40 kinds of parasites live on MOla-Mola and it is while they are being cleaned by schools of Longfin bannerfish that we are abale to see then stationary for any length time.
The most likely sites to see Mola-Mola are over at Nusa Penida and outside Padangbai/Candidasa although there have been rare,early morning sightings on the Liberty shipwreck in Tulamben
