Common name: Bartail Goatfish. Scientific name: Upeneus tragula. Family: Mullidae.

Bartail Goatfish:  Growing to about 30cm, the Bartail Goatfish is white to pinkish, with a red to black stripe and brownish spots on the side of the body.  It has a barred tail and yellow barbels (the things hanging down from their head).

In Australia it is known from south-western Western Australia, around the tropical north of the country, and south to the southern coast of New South Wales.

They feed on the soft seabed using their long barbels to dig and sense small prey.
