Caption: Schooling grunts. This school contains bluestriped grunts (Haemulon sciurus, dark tails) and white grunts (H. plumieri, light tails). These grunts inhabit reefs around the western Atlantic Ocean. The white grunt has the greater range, being found from Chesapeake Bay, USA, to Brazil. The bluestriped grunt is found mainly in the Caribbean Sea. The white grunt is also slightly larger, reaching over 50 centimetres in length, compared to about 45 centimetres for the bluestriped grunt. Both are valued as food fish. Photographed off San Salvador Island in the Bahamas, in the Caribbean Sea.
