Prey Odors as Chemical Stimulants of Feeding Behavior in the Red Sea Moray Eel Siderea Grisea
Moray eels of the family Muraenidae are carnivorous fishes which inhabit, in the tropics, both the coral reef itself and the sandy areas with scattered boulders and corals. There are three genera of moray eels in the Gulf of Aqaba, Red Sea: Echidna, Gymnothorax and Siderea.
