Information about the Coral Trout:
The Coral Trout - also called the Leopard Coral Grouper or Leopard Coral Trout is a species of fish in the Serranidae family. Native to the western Pacific Ocean, its natural habitat includes open seas and coral reefs. Coral trout are piscivorous; juveniles mostly eat crustaceans, especially prawns, and adults feed upon a variety of reef fish, particularly damselfish. The Coral trout is found in the waters around warm tropical waters of the South Pacific. Its natural habitat includes open seas and coral reefs. Studies suggest that coral trout move around considerably within a single reef, though often no further than 1600 feet (500 meters) from it. The average daily growth of newly settled juveniles has been measured at 0.81 mm per day. This means they reach close to 14 cm (5.5 in) in the first 6 months. Growth rates of coral trout are variable; every age class has a wide range of sizes. To estimate growth, the age and size of a fish must be determined. Recent research at Bramble Reef has found that common coral trout reaches a maximum age of 16 years.
