Sergeant Major

The Sergeant Major is an abundant fish in Cayman, you can almost guarantee to see them when snorkeling around coral. They earned their name, Sergeant Major, because of their bright side stripes. These fish pretty much eat anything including larvae, small fish, algae, crustaceans, zooplankton and have even been known to consume the waste of spinner dolphins. They lay their eggs in patches and unlike a lot of other fish species, they guard them until they hatch. Which is probably why they are so abundant.
