Bluestripe Snapper

Lutjanus kasmira

Description:

The Bluestripe Snapper's body is moderately deep in profile, with a distinctly steeply-sloped head. The back and sides of the fish are bright yellow, while the underside fades to white, presumably as camouflage to disappear against the bright ocean surface when viewed from below. Four bright-blue stripes run lengthwise across the side of the fish, with several faint greyish stripes on the lowermost part of sides.

Habitat:

Hanauma Bay
