Bermuda Chub



Kyphosus sectatrix, the Bermuda chub, Pacific drummer, beaked chub, grey drummer, Pacific chub or white chub, is a species of marine ray-finned fish, a sea chub from the family Kyphosidae. This species is found in tropical and subtropical coastal waters worldwide. It has had a confused taxonomic history dating back to Linnaeus's naming of the species in 1758.

Like most other sea chub, the Bermuda chub is a schooling species that moves quickly.They are often abundant in clear, shallow water over turtle grass, sandy or rocky bottoms, around tropical reefs, harbors, and small ships. A less common, larger relative is the yellow chub, which is almost impossible for the average angler to distinguish from the Bermuda Chub.

Zoological study of three fish specimens in profile: a flying fish [top], Exocoetidae, referred to here as Hirundo; a Bermuda chub [middle], Kyphosus sectatrix, referred to here as Perca sectatrix, and; a common perch [bottom], Perca fluviatilis.


The Bermuda chub evolves from the surface down to 30 m, above meadows, rocky and sandy bottoms and around coral reefs, near the coast. Juveniles are camouflaged under algae clusters such as Sargassum sp types.The Bermuda chub is found in the Gulf of Mexico, the West Indies, Madeira, the Canary Islands, and the Azores, southern Portugal and northwest Spain. The presence of this fish is increasing in the Mediterranean.


The rudderfish, Centrolophus niger (also known as Bermuda chub), is a medusafish, the only member of the genus Centrolophus. It is found in all tropical and temperate oceans at depths of 50 to 1,000 m. Its length is from 60 to 150 cm. More


This note reports the main morphometric and meristic parameters of a male Bermuda sea chub (Khyphosus sectator) caught off the Algarve coast (southern Portugal). This is the first occurrence of this tropical fish species in Portuguese continental waters, and the second and northernmost capture ever reported for the north-eastern Atlantic. 041b061a72
