Groupers and Big Fish – Reef Life of the Andaman – Part 10

Description

Groupers and big fishes from the Andaman Sea.

After an introduction to 2 small and common members of the grouper family, the blacktip grouper, Epinephelus fasciatus, and longfin grouper, Epinephelus quoyanus, we meet 2 of the biggest species, the brown-marbled grouper, Epinephelus fuscoguttatus, at Richelieu Rock in Thailand, and a friendly potato cod, Epinephelus tukula, at the Burma Banks in Myanmar.

At the Similan Islands we then encounter the largest wrasse, the humphead wrasse, Cheilinus undulatus, sometimes known as the Napoleon wrasse, and the impressive green humphead parrotfish (bumphead parrotfish), Bolbometopon muricatum.

We then take a look at the great barracuda, Sphyraena barracuda, in Burma and three different species of trevally, or jacks: The giant trevally, Caranx ignobilis, the golden trevally, Gnathanodon speciosus, and the bluefin trevally, Caranx melampygus.
