Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults inhabit coral reefs (Ref. 30573, 58652), usually in schools on coastal reefs and in deep lagoons (Ref. 48635). Often in large aggregations with Lutjanus kasmira and Lutjanus lutjanus (Ref. 9710). Juveniles are sometimes found in mangrove estuaries or in the lower reaches of freshwater streams. Feed mainly on fishes, shrimps, crabs and other crustaceans (Ref. 30573). Neither anterolateral glandular groove nor venom gland is present (Ref. 57406). Current information in the table (dangerous fish) do not match; needs verification.

IUCN Red List Status (Ref. 115185)

Threat to humans
