English term or phrase: "Horse Eyed Jack" and "Trigger Fish"
I need to know how these two ocean fish are called in French. Are there any resources or glossaries available on the web regarding ocean fish (common names, not the latin names), sponges and corals?

Explanation:
I found a translation for tiggerfishes on the webside below. It is an Islandic site. Press on Enska and you get the total vocabulary in English, go to the word and you will find its translation in different languages. The search option did not seem to work for my computer. There was no specific translation for horse eyed jack, but there were a number of options under "jack" and "horse". I don't give the web site a total confidence, that is why I chose the spelling of balistite from Harrap's dictionary, and not "balistidé as in the website. Good luck
