Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found on coral reefs and rocky bottoms (Ref. 3800 ). Forms small aggregations near the bottom (Ref. 10786 ). A nocturnal feeder (Ref. 5521 ), feeds mainly on small fishes, crustaceans and polychaetes (Ref. 3800 ). Most of its prey are larvae. Flesh considered excellent quality; marketed fresh (Ref. 5217 ).
