ABSTRACT
Triggerfish, the common name for a group of shallow-water, tropical marine fish. There are about 30 species, including the common triggerfish and the queen triggerfish. Triggerfish range in size from about 6 to 24 inches (15 to 60 cm), depending on the species. The bodies, which are flattened from side to side, are in most species brightly colored. Triggerfish have powerful teeth and feed on sea urchins and other spiny animals. Most species are covered by large, rough scales. Triggerfish are considered to be good food fish.
