Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species is reported to be found on deep offshore reefs as adults, but juveniles may occur as shallow as 9 m (Ref. 75973). Also, adults inhabit the vicinity of coral and rocky reefs, often over sand or rubble in deeper water. Feed mainly on benthic invertebrates such as mollusks and crustaceans (Ref. 9823). Oviparous, distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). An excellent food fish (Ref. 3132).
