Husbandry

Allen & Robertson, 1999

Very special thanks for the first three photos of Epinephelus clippertonensis to Dr. Gerry R. Allen and Dr. Ross Robertson, Australia, who has taken the photos around Clipperton Island in the Eastern Central Pacific Ocean.

Epinephelus clippertonensis is found in shallow reefs and rocky bottoms. Because of the isolation of Clipperton, nothing is know about its biology, but it is assumed that it is very similar to its sister species and very closely relative, Epinephelus labriformes.

Epinephelus clippertonensis is also known from Revillagigedo.

Best left in the wild!
