fingerfish

any of the half dozen species of fishes in the family Monodactylidae (order Perciformes), found from the Atlantic coast of western Africa to the Indo-Pacific region and usually inhabiting inshore or estuarine waters. They are extremely compressed and deep-bodied and are often greater in height than in length. Because of this shape and the characteristic silvery colour, they are sometimes called moonfishes
