Latridae is a family of perciform fishes known as the trumpeters. They are found in the Pacific Ocean, southern Indian Ocean and southeastern Atlantic Ocean. They are fished commercially and for sport. They are closely related to Cheilodactylidae, and the majority of the species traditionally placed in that family have been reassigned to Latridae based on DNA and morphological analyses, with the kelpfish and marblefish the closest relatives of Latridae.[2][3][4]
