Fish Info

Queen TriggerfishThe Queen Triggerfish is a large species from the tropical Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Its body is large powerful, the eyes being set high up on the forehead. The base color of the fish is a light yellow while the dorsal and anal fins are tinted in blue. All Triggerfishes have the unique ability to lock their first two dorsal spines in an upright position, providing a defense against the larger predators of the oceans that try to make a meal of them.
