Largescale triggerfish habitat
This benthopelagic species attains a maximum total length of 60 cm. Adults are pelagic and school in oceanic waters, while juveniles are often observed under floating weeds or adult schools (Kuiter 2014, Jawad 2018). Spawning occurs over deep sand banks, and demersal eggs are laid in shallow concavities in the sand or coral rubble (Randall 1995, Clark et al. 2015).
