Titan Triggerfish close-up. Titan Triggerfish are the largest Triggerfish in the Indo-Pacific region, round mostly in lagoons and reefs. They are the workers of the reef, often busy turning over rocks, stirring up the sand and biting off pieces of branching corals. Triggerfish derive their name from their dorsal spine which can be locked into an raised position by an additional, smaller dorsal spine. The raised spine is released by depressing the smaller (trigger) spine. The more aggressive Triggerfish use their raised spine as a warning for fish or other creatures invading their territory. Also, very cleverly, they use their spine to lock themselves into coral crevasses. Female Triggerfish become very territorial and aggressive during the nesting season.
