Thanks, but no it is not a yellowtailed fusilier because we caught some on the same trip.

Sorry, deep bodied fusilier. (Caesio cuning) Thank you to Doug Segar

This fish grows to 60 cm in length.

It inhabits offshore reef slopes, commonly in large schools. It is usually seen hovering in midwater feeding on zooplankton.

The Deep Bodied Fusilier is found at depths from 1 m to 60 m.

It occurs in tropical marine waters of the Indo-West Pacific, from Sri Lanka, throughout South-east Asia and Micronesia, north to Japan, south to Australia and east to Vanuatu.

In Australia it is known from the north-western coast of Western Australia, around the tropical north of the country, and south to central New South Wales.

Doug and Elaine published a textbook "Introduction to Ocean Sciences". The book includes many of our images and provides a comprehensive introduction to our knowledge of the oceans that can serve as a reference or the basis for learning about what we understand about ocean processes that are the foundation upon which the marine life shown in our images is based. Click on the image of the book cover to learn more about this text and about the Introduction to the Marine environment course that Doug teaches online and in the classroom in Berkeley and Oakland, California using this text.
