Schooling Bluestriped Grunts (Haemulon scierus), Northern Huvadhu Atoll, Southern Maldives, Indian Ocean : Stock Photo
The Bluestriped Grunt (Haemulon scierus) is common in mangroves, reefs, and seagrass beds at depths to 98.5 feet (30m). The common fish name grunt is derived from the grunt-like sound produced when it grinds the teeth deep within its throat. The sound is amplified by the taut air bladder that acts as a resonator. Grunts are closely related to snappers, but are generally smaller and have deeply notched tails.
