Info

Allen & Robertson, 1992

Very special thanks for the first three photos of Halichoeres insularis to Dr. Ross Robertson, Australia.

He has taken the photos at
Revillagigedo and at Socorro Island in the Eastern Central Pacific where the wrasse lives in a depth of 7 to 10 meters.

These fishs requires sandy bottoms.

Fairly abundant over rock and coarse sand substrates. The wrasse forms schools of various sizes that move approximately 1 m above the bottom. They are too small to be marketed commercially.

Best left in the wild!
