Golden Trevally – Gnathanodon speciosus

Stare at our yellow fins and black stripes long enough, and you will be hypnotised.

Golden trevally form large schools which follow bigger fishes like groupers and sharks and occasionally sea jellies. These larger ‘hosts’ offer them protection against dangerous predators.  Often sourced as fish food, golden trevally do not give up without a fight when cornered – these fish are known for their fast runs.

Did you know?

Golden trevally are  strikingly and  beautifully coloured with bright yellow fins and black stripes – you’ll agree when you see them at the aquarium! These stripes and colour combination confuse would-be predators that try to single out individuals swimming in a school.
