Photos of greenfin fish, posted in our article, provide an opportunity to get an idea of ​​how it looks.

The ruddy head is large, with an elongated snout. The lips are mobile, soft. The teeth are located on both jaws in one row: in front they are small, flat, near the pharynx - massive, tuberous.

The color can vary greatly from dark green to light shades of golden with greenish tints. Some greenfinches are covered with blue or purple spots.

Rulens living in the Mediterranean Sea grow in length from 25 (females) to 35 (males) centimeters. Gain up to half a kilogram of weight. Black Sea wrasses are smaller: about 14 cm in length and 250 g in weight.


Fish can be found in the Mediterranean, Black, Azov Sea and Atlantic Ocean. In the north, the range extends to Thorndheim (Norway). Large populations live in the Mediterranean, Black and Azov Seas along the coasts of the Caucasus, Greece, Crimea, Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania.

This fish is well known to tourists who have a rest in the Black Sea resorts. Here she is to some extent an attraction. Wrasse meat is not very tasty, although edible. Therefore, the catch is rare. The fish is not afraid of people and allows divers to come to it. It is very interesting to observe the large iridescent greenfish in the Black Sea.

The wrasse does not pose any danger to humans.

The nature of behavior in the natural environment

Zelenukha is not a very sociable fish. It is believed that there is no special inclination to gregariousness, but some individuals stray into small groups. Each rulena has its own small territory, which fiercely protects from the encroachments of other fish.

Prefers places with a rocky bottom, overgrown with aquatic vegetation. It hibernates in the same place where it lives.


Zelenukha feeds mainly on molluscs, mainly bivalves. Unlike most congeners, it does not swallow the prey whole, but crushes shells with massive teeth and sucks out food from there. The wrasse spits out pieces of the shell. We can say that this fish feeds on pure shellfish meat.

But plant food also occupies an important place in the diet. The wrasse gnaws at the plant with the same powerful teeth. The fish also sifts through a huge amount of sand, choosing from it fragments of plants and marine small animals. The diet also includes crustaceans, the shells of which crushes and spits out the green stuff. It happens that the fish eats sea worms.


Spawning occurs in late spring and the first third of summer. Eggs are bottom, sticky.

Shortly before the start of spawning, design talent wakes up in the male. He begins to improve the territory in which his children will be born. The nest has an oblong shape and a flat bottom.

Dad puts in there fragments of shells and flat stones that he finds nearby. The male carries everything he needs in his own mouth.

The eggs that have appeared stick to stones and shells, and from above, a caring parent wraps them with scraps of algae so that no one will covet his future offspring.

Courtship of green whales is very peculiar. Some males try to charm their girlfriends, but more often they, as they say, take the female impudently. The wrasse, ready to create a family, furiously swarms about in the nest, drives several females, beats them, pats them by the fins, until one of the finally intimidated does not agree to accept these courtship.

The nest is filled with unfertilized eggs, fertilization itself occurs after, when the male spits milk.


Not only mating games of greenfinches can be accompanied by such behavior. If a male does this to a lady of the heart, you can imagine what he is ready to do with a stranger who has encroached on his territory.

Green whales have a bad temper, they are wary of fish of other species, especially food competitors. Own relatives are usually avoided, even if they live nearby.

Commercial value

Ask any Black Sea fisherman if it is possible to eat green fish, and he will answer in the affirmative. But he will explain that fish meat is sweetish, not very tasty.

There is no commercial catch. But local fishermen fish for wrasse using hems and fishing rods.
