Sreeram, Miriam Paul and Khan, Mohammad Zafar and Deshmukh, V D and Dias, J R and Sundaram, Sujit (2010) Record of the rare serranid fish Boulenger’s anthias Sacura boulengeri (Heemstra, 1973) from Mumbai waters. Marine Fisheries Information Service; Technical and Extension Series, 206. pp. 14-15.
The family Serranidae comprising of 62 genera with 449 species is divided into three subfamilies namely, Anthiinae, Epinephelinae (tribes Epinephelini, Niphonini, Liopropomatini, Diploprioni, Grammistini) and Serraninae. Among the genera, Epinephelus has the largest number of species and are the most commercially important. The Anthiinae, comprising fairy basslets and sea goldies, though relatively smaller and very colourful, do not make good aquarium candidates as they are exclusively planktivorus.
