English term or phrase: knifejaw
Colegas,
Encontrei esta espécie de peixe nest contexto:
“Small reef fish species are abundant, as are larger species not prone to capture by fishermen, e.g. Mozambique knifejaw.”
Depois de bastantes pesquizas encontrei o nome “rodovalho” mas não sei se serve.
Agradecia uma ajuda,
Norberto

É um peixe to tipo peixe-papagaio (parrot fish).

Ver:

The Knifejaw has teeth in both jaws that are fused into a parrot-like beak.


A minha sugestão será a de deixar o nome em inglês, Mozambique knifejaw, e indicar o nome científico.
