Napoleon Wrasse on coral reef close

Napoleon Wrasse, aka Humpback Wrasse, are very important to coral reef health. They eat crown-of-thorn starfish and therefore keep populations of this damaging coral reef predator in check.


Commercial fisheries have been driving the Napoleon Wrasse towards extinction. Both adults and juveniles are targeted by the live reef fish trade, being considered a luxury food, especially in Hong Kong, and is a victim of illegal fishing.
