Barred Grunt

Barred Grunt

Conodon nobilis

 

Barred grunts belong to a family of fish with teeth in their throats. These grunts, which make a grunting sound when they rub their throat teeth together, named themselves. Actually tropical fish, barred grunts visit the piers, jetties and hard bottoms of the southern Texas coast in late spring and summer.
