Red Mullet, Goatfish & Tiny Barbounia (Upeneus tragula) Photographs and Information


The Barbounia or Red Mullet occurs in tropical and some warm temperate waters of the Indo-West Pacific. The species is white to pinkish, with a red to black stripe and brownish spots on the side of the body. The Bartail Goatfish occurs in tropical and some warm temperate waters of the Indo-West Pacific. The species is white to pinkish, with a red to black stripe and brownish spots on the side of the body.



Also known as Mottled Goatfish, Bartail Goatfish, Red Mullet and Freckled Goatfish

Shaped like a Whiting, but slightly more rounded, it has two barbels attached to it's lower jaw and a forked caudal fin.

The Bartail Goatfish has a slightly compressed, elongate body that is covered with large scales. It has a forked caudal fin, and an anal fin that is opposite and similar to the second dorsal fin. There are bands of villiform teeth on the jaws, palatines and vomer.

The species is white to pinkish, with a red to black stripe and brownish spots on the side of the body. It has a barred tail and yellow barbels.

These fish typically inhabit inshore waters where they feed on soft sandy areas of seabed using strong barbels on the underside of their mouth to dig and to sense small prey.

It is a bottom feeding fish.  Good bait to use are worms and prawns.
