Smallmouth Grunt

Haemulon chrysargyreum

Habitat:

Widespread throughout the western Atlantic Ocean from south Florida to the cost of Brazil, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. This grunt likes exposed areas of coral reefs and rocky coasts up to 25 meters deep.

Notes:

A school was swimming near the boulders that make this breakwater. See if you can spot a few Yellow Goatfish swimming with them. Hint: just one central yellow stripe.
