Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Suezichthys bifurcatus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Suezichthys bifurcatus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Suezichthys bifurcatus, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Husbandry

Russell, 1986

Very special thanks for a (very rare) photo of Suezichthys bifurcatus to Dr. Barry Hutchins (now deserved retired, formerly Ichthyologist at the Western Australian Museum and senior author of "Sea Fishes of Southern Australia").

This endemic wrasse occurs in deeper water on rubble bottoms near algal covered rocky reefs.
Distribution: In southern and south-western Australia, from the Great Australian Bight, South Australia (133°E) Shark Bay, to Rottnest Island, Western Australia.

The Striped Trawl Wrasse, a reef associated species, is taken as by-catch in bottom trawls and seldom photographed.
Prey: Secured informations about its favorated prey are missing, probably small crustaceans like copepods and invertebrates.

Occasionally taken as by-catch in bottom trawls.

Description: A wrasse with a brownish back becoming white, with a black mid-lateral stripe, irregular dark spots along the back and dorsal-fin base, a narrow broken strip along the mid-upper side, and a a dark spot on the pectoral-fin base and yellow dorsal, anal and caudal fins.
