Bridled leatherjacket

The Bridled leatherjacket lives in the demersal, brackish, marine environment.

Male Bridled Leatherjackets can be recognised by their distinctive colouration. They are greyish with blue spots on the upper and lower sides of the body. A blue line curves across the cheek to the eye and then along the side of the body. More
