Info

Jordan & Starks, 1897

Very special thanks for the first photo of Orthopristis forbesi to the famous Australien ichthyologist Dr. Gerry R. Allen.
Dr. Allen has taken his photo at Galapagos Islands.

Orthopristis forbesi is endemic to the Eastern Pacific and is found only in the Galápagos Islands.

The Galapagos grunt is a reef-associated species and may form schools above rocky, boulder strewn reefs, slopes and hard substrate with strong currents or tides.
It may mingle with yellowtail grunts and golden-eyed grunts.
