Caption

Heavybeak parrotfish or steephead parrotfish (Chlorurus gibbus). This tropical fish inhabits reefs and shallow waters in the Red Sea, feeding mainly on algae and reaching a length of around 70 centimetres. Cases of ciguatera poisoning from eating this fish have been reported. This occurs when toxins accumulate in a large tropical fish, originating from an alga further down the food chain. Photographed in the Red Sea.
