Atlantic Porkfish

Facts and Information

atlantic porkfish

A common fish found in massive schools around the isles of the Caribbean, particularly the Virgin Islands, hence the Latin species name Virginicus.  The Atlantic Porkfish grows close to sixteen inches and frequents rocky as well as reef areas.  Like many of its relatives (Sweetlips, Highhats, Snappers) this species is nocturnal, venturing out to feed at night on mollusks (clams and bivalves), echinoderms (starfish), annelids (segmented worms aka polychaetes), and crustaceans (crabs, isopods and copepods, shrimps).  Young pick parasites from the bodies of larger fishes (Ref. 5521). Juveniles act as "cleaners" for other fish, picking off pesky skin parasites.
