A slow-moving fish relying partly on stealth and camouflage to sneak up on unsuspecting prey. Often darts down vertically on its prey. Sucks small fishes into its mouth. It can change its color pattern to blend with its surroundings. Caught with various type of artisanal gears. Occasionally consumed by the local population. [details]
