The pictures of the Napoleon wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus) originated at the Ras Mohammad in the Sinai, on the Red Sea and the Shark Reef in the Beqa lagoon in Fiji.

This wrasse - it can be found in the Red Sea and in the whole indicator - can grow to over two meters in size. He lives at the edge of the reef and is very trustful - a pleasant sight for every diver. At night he retreats to his sleeping cave and is then a particularly easy prey for people who are after him. Unfortunately, the stock of this species has declined sharply, as it is highly valued as edible fish. Sometimes even cyanide is used to capture him. This poison has fatal consequences not only for the Napoleonfish, but for the whole reef. Fishing of the Napoleon is almost always uncontrolled and monitoring the fishing is very difficult. Large specimens are becoming increasingly rare.
