Trophic Strategy

provided by Fishbase
Found in aggregations over hard, algal coated bottoms of exposed, surf-swept outer reef flats, lagoon and seaward reefs, to a depth of at least 24 m. Mainly herbivorous, feeding on seaweeds and associated invertebrates (Ref. 30573). Appears to be more commonly involved in hallucinogenic fish poisoning than most other related species (Ref. 4690). Caught with other types of artisanal gear. Minimum depth reported taken from Ref. 30874.

利用

provided by The Fish Database of Taiwan
主要漁法為刺網及手釣,定置網亦常有所獲,產量不大,全年皆產。因食物鏈的關係,容易引起食物中毒,故需注意鮮度。肉質極佳,煮薑絲清湯最宜,煎炸食用亦可。
