Latin Name: Priacanthus
General Size: 14"
The big eyes are found in the Family Priacanthidae
and are named as such due to their nocturnal feeding
habits. Large eyes aid these fish in gathering as much
ambient light as possible while roaming reefs at night
searching for small fishes, crustaceans and polychaetes.
Big eyes are found primarily in the Eastern and Western
Atlantic with some representation in the Mediterranean.
