Smooth trunkfish Featured Trunkfish Print

Smooth trunkfish

Smooth trunkfish (Lactophrys triqueter). This fish inhabits reefs and coastal regions in the western Atlantic Ocean, from as far north as Canada to Brazil. It feeds on bottom-dwelling invertebrates such as crustaceans, shellfish, worms, sponges and sea squirts. It uncovers these from sandy seabeds by squirting a jet of water from its mouth. It can secrete a toxin when threatened that can be fatal for other fish. In aquaria this can cause the death of the entire population of a tank, including the trunkfish itself. It can reach a length of around 47 centimetres. Photographed off Bonaire Island in the Netherlands Antilles, in the Caribbean Sea
