BIGEYE EMPORER

Emporers are a diverse group of snapper-like relatives.  Only one species is present in Hawaiian waters.  The Mu feeds upon gastropods and crabs, crushing them with molariform teeth.  It is an excellent food fish and is very skittish around divers.  Colors vary according to disposition and local variants occur throughout the Indo-Pacific
