Found in shallow reefs and seagrass beds, the emperor fish is a delicacy enjoyed worldwide. They live in large schools and are a favourite among fishermen and city dwellers across India. There are many varieties of the emperor fish, like the Red Emperor and Trumpet Emperor. What makes it sought-after is its taste and texture. The Emperor fish is known to be less oily and have a mild and slightly sweet flavour.
