Red snapper prefer reef and rocky bottom habitats. However, in contrast, the Yellowtail snapper lives in deeper, sand-covered locations. Snapper The Kingfish is a consumer (carnivore), eats other living organisms, such as, kahawai, small snapper, sardines, squid and, sprats. The kingfish is prey to dolphins, sharks, barracuda, and seals. The kingfish is a streamlined fish, slightly flattened on it's side with a tapered head. Its color ranges from a bluish green on its back to their silvery sides. Kingfish The John Dory (also known as St. Peter's fish) is a consumer (carnivore), eats other living organisms, such as pilchards, snapper, and kahawai. John Dory are a slow swimming fish that rely on a camouflage to catch its prey. They can also catch their prey by stalking it, then shooting a tube out of its mouth to capture its prey. John Dory is the prey of black marlin, sharks, and other large bony fish. John Dory The black marlin is a consumer (carnivore), eats other living organisms as a diet. Black marlin feed on john dory, kahawai, squid, tuna, and other sea fish. Black marlin is the prey of great white sharks, and short fin mako (shark). The black marlin can look different colours underwater, for example with lots of light it looks more silvery, but in contrast, with little light the black marlin looks black. The marlin can use this to their advantage, by camouflaging in deeper darker waters when hunting. Black Marlin Seals are consumers, they eat other living organisms (carnvore), such as kingfish, penguins, squid, fish and shell fish. Seals are prey to sharks, killer whales, and polar bears. Seals have the ability to bring their highly sensitive whiskers forward to feel for fish in dark waters. They also have fur so they can keep warm in cooler waters. Seals have very flexible necks so they are able to look completely behind them, male seals use this often so they can watch over their territory. Seal The great white shark is a consumer (carnivore),eats other living organisms. This shark is one of the top predators in the ocean, it eats almost anything from plankton to black marlin and seal. There aren't many identified predators of the shark, but there are some animals that attempt to attack the shark. These sea creatures are other sharks, snails, and whales. Great White Shark = Where the energy is going
= Interesting facts
= Tip Pilchards are consumers (omnivores), they eat other living organisms such as water fleas, tiny prawns, phytoplankton and krill. Pilchards are prey to
sharks, whales, dolphins, sea birds, larger fish like tuna, sea lions, and seals. Pilchards are darker on the top of their back so that they are harder to be seen from above, however they are lighter on the bottom of their stomach so that they are harder to be seen from below against the light above. Sprats travel in large groups to decrease being eaten. Kina are omnivores but prefer to eat large brown seaweeds. Hermit crabs use the discarded shells of other creatures to
protect their soft bodies. In one pilchard fishing trip around 10 000 tonnes of fish are caught Tuatua live to be about 4-5, reaching their maximum size of 80mm.
Snappers are found in tropical waters sometimes in rocky areas or near coral reefs. Kahawai are known as the 'Australian Salmon' even though they are not related to salmon. St. Peter that was left there after he took a coin from within the body The black spot located at the middle of its body is said to be the thumb mark of Kingfish belong to one of the biggest families under the sea Seals are considered "the best friends of the sea."
