Anyone Know What Sort Of Fish This Is?


This large fish caught my grandson's attention at Nausicaa, and I wonder if there is anyone who can identify it for him?

We did e-mail Nausicaa, but have not heard from them.

Thanks!

I am pretty certain it is a Humphead Wrasse. Found around coral reefs.

aka Napoleon Wrasse / Elvis fish

They get _very_ big, and can seem interested in divers.

I've seen 'em in the Red Sea

I caught one off Antigua a few years ago

Very tasty, salted.

Looks like properly battered it would go great with chips.

I would have gone for a Maori Wrasse.
They leave in the Great Barrier Reef just off Queensland.

It is a humphead wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus)

Napoleon Wrasse or a Grouper I'd say.
