Pygmy snapper

The Pygmy snapper lives in the demersal, freshwater, brackish environment.

Look out for pygmy snapper and red mangrove snapper, two species that are less common elsewhere. There are also several different species of triggerfish, butterflyfish and angelfish, highlighting why Indonesian diving is regarded as the most diverse in the world. More

The presence of Pygmy Snapper in Useless Inlet has not been determined. Any future questions regarding this issue should be referred to the Minister for Fisheries. More
