The Fish Journal records the following information:

[edit] Location

Can be seen all year round.

[edit] Description 1

A narrow fish with an oval-shaped body, large dorsal and anal fins and a length of 30cm. It is white with numerous black stripes covering its head and body.

[edit] Description 2

Using the spines around its caudal fin joint, it can defend itself against predators. Unlike the adult fish, the infant fish are yellow in colour.

[edit] Description 3

Like some other species of fish, it is impossible to tell its age just by looking at the external appearance. However, statoliths formed inside the fish from calcified matter and known as 'daily rings' allow us to calculate the age of the fish in days and when it hatched from its egg.
