Threadfin bream

provided by wikipedia EN

The threadfin breams consist of the family Nemipteridae within the order Perciformes. They are also known as whiptail breams and false snappers.

They are found in tropical waters of the Indian and western Pacific Oceans. Most species are benthic carnivores, preying on smaller fishes, cephalopods, crustaceans and polychaetes; however, a few species eat plankton.

Threadfin bream harbour parasites. A study conducted in New Caledonia has shown that the fork-tailed threadfin bream (Nemipterus furcosus) harboured 25 species of parasites, including nematodes, cestodes, digeneans, monogeneans, isopods, and copepods. None of these parasites is transmitted to humans.[2]
