Striped grunter

The Striped grunter lives in the benthopelagic, marine, depth range - 30 m environment.

There were dense shoals of striped grunter in most holes and caves, and a lone devil firefish lurked upside down under a deep ledge. I passed a series of caves and slots in the northern section of Raggie Cave and found a number of loggerhead turtles “sleeping”. More
