Some fish change dramatically as they mature from the juvenile to intermediate to adult stage. Let the expert pirates at Sea Rovers help you check them off your bucket list.

Batfish / Spadefish (Platax pinnatus)

Juvenile batfish/spadefish from Todd Aki

I don’t have a photo of a true juvenile, so this is from photographer Todd Aki’s Flickr page

This is technically an intermediate phase since you can see stripes starting to form
