An unusual report for the British Isles is the Two-banded Sea Bream which has been sighted off Guernsey’s north coast. The sea bream, Diplodus vulgaris, has an oblong body that can grow to 45 cm although they usually reach 20-25 cm. They are generally grey, brownish or greenish in colour with a broad black band. These fish are carnivores and feed on crustaceans and molluscs.
