Description Inhabits coral reefs, including sheltered lagoons and outer reefs. Usually found solitarily, often adjacent to steep outer reef slopes. Feeds mainly on fishes, but also takes shrimps, crabs, amphipods, stomatopods, gastropods and urochordates. Large fish from oceanic areas in the western Pacific are often ciguatoxic, e.g. in Tuvalu (Ref. 9513). Utilized fresh and dried-salted (Re. 9987). Reported to grow up 90 cm in length (Ref. 9987). The young have been repported to mimic certain damselfishes of the genus Chromis, such as C. ternatensis (Bleeker) and thereby get closer to their prey <307>. [details]
