The bluestriped grunt occurs in the western Atlantic from Florida to Brazil, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. It prefers shallow water over coral reefs and drop-offs to deeper water. As juveniles, these grunts are abundant in sea grass beds.
The bluestriped grunt has a yellow head and body with long horizontal blue stripes along the sides of its body. This grunt has a black caudal fin, which distinguishes it from the French grunt, whose caudal fin is yellow.
Look for schools of the bluestriped grunt near the tunnel in the Ocean Voyager gallery.
