Dentex Dentex Boinaex

The common dentex (Dentex dentex) is a species of fish in the family Sparidae. Adult dentex can reach a length of one metre (3 ft), and weight up to 16 kg (35 lb).

Dentex is an active predator, feeding on other fish, mollusca and cephalopods. It is solitary for most of the year, but during reproduction it lives in groups for some weeks: fully-grown dentex stay together just two to three weeks during spring in the warmer water near the surface.

The Dentex Dentex Boinaex is an almost extinct relation, recognizable by the beret (boina-) shaped forehead.
