This cornetfish is another immigrant from the Red Sea via the Suez Canal. Immigrant species such as this are called Lessepsian species after Ferdinand de Lesseps who set-up the company that built the Suez canal.
First spotted in the Levant Sea in 2000, it took only 7 years to reach the coast of France.
