Hawaiian Hogfish Wrasse

Bodianus albotaeniatus

Hawaiian hogfish are striped members of the wrasse family with a black dot at the base of a yellow tail. We have only seen these once in water less than 30 feet deep. The photos here are of that fish, taken in very murky water at beach 69 near Hapuna on the Big Island.
