Humphead Wrasse Fish

Humphead Wrasse Fish

This huge fish is important to the health of the coral reefs where it lives. These fish can be over 6 feet long and live 30 years. Habitat loss and illegal fishing threatens the existence of the humphead wrasse, which is considered a delicacy in Southeast Asia, one of the most expensive live reef fishes in the world. Pictured is a humphead wrasse in an aquarium in Japan.
