The Blunt-nosed Gnasher is a salt-water fish, growing to approximately 3 feet in length. Its teeth are razor sharp. There are several different sub-species of gnashers, but all have a single row of sharp teeth in both jaws; the teeth are tightly packed and interlocking (via small cusps) and used for rapid puncture and shearing. Individual teeth are typically broadly triangular, pointed, and blade-like (flat in profile). There is minor variation in the number of cusps; in most species the teeth are tricuspid with a larger middle cusp that makes the individual teeth appear markedly triangular.
Gnashers are found throughout the Six Seas region. Though very aggressive and not a very attractive fish, the meat is considered extremely tasty.
