Description Chiefly marine; very rare in fresh- and brackish water. Distribution: tropical and temperate Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Dorsal fin usually having 10-13 spines; soft rays 10-15. Three spines in anal fin; soft rays 8-14. Maxilla hidden by a sheath when mouth is closed. Branchiostegal rays 6. Vertebrae 24 (10 + 14). To about 1.2 m maximum length. Many species have been found to be hermaphroditic; some have male and female gonads simultaneously; others change sex as they get larger. Premier food and game fishes. Many species around southern Africa. A few species have been implicated in cases of ciguatera. [details]
