Latin Name: Fistularia
General Size: 30"
The Bluespotted Cornetfish is a decidedly different
looking fish. This very long and slender reef dweller
is in the family Fistulariidae which is also the same
order as the pipefishes and seahorses. Its skeletal
structures are as equally fascinating as its spectacular
color and design. It has particularly large eyes and
hunts for other fishes and small invertebrates. This
species is found virtually the entire length of the
coast line on the Western Atlantic as well as the entire
western coast of Africa. More often than not this fish
is found alone and can be seen at depths of up to 200m.
