    Thanks for the detailed info about the fish. Could they change colors like some fish when they change sex from male to female?

    Awesome thanks Mark. Depraved generally speaking the yellowish colours are mostly on the Juveniles. They fade at adulthood although there are reports out there of larger fish with that pattern.

    This species is listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List by the way. Big fishing pressure in certain parts as it fetches huge prices at market.

    Thankfully though it is a notorious ciguatera carrier so they are not eaten at all in other areas.

    Stunning report mark and well done to the operators. I wish them every success and hope to have a trip with them one day myself.
