California Sheepshead

Latin Name:  Semicossyphus pulcher
 

General Size:  12 x 5”

The California Sheepshead is a distinctly colored resident of the reefs and structure of the Eastern Pacific and the Gulf of California. This fish is found in the wrasse family (Labridae) and the males are a distinct black and red color. They spend much of their time foraging for armored prey such as mollusks, urchins, lobsters and crabs. Amazingly they may live up to 50 years and all start their life as females and later change to male thus taking on the new coloration. Males may reach a length of up to 3 feet and weigh as much as 35 pounds.
