The Yellowmargin Triggerfish is a species of Triggerfish. They originate in coastal tropical waters and reefs of the Indo-Pacific from the Red Sea south to Natal, South Africa and east from southern Japan south to Indonesia, Philippines and Samoa. They can be found at water depths from 2–50 m (7–165 ft). These triggerfish can grow to a maximum length of 60 cm (23 in). They are marketed either fresh or dried for food, but are potentially dangerous in some areas due to ciguatera poisoning.
