Antigonia is a genus of zeiform marine
fishbelonging to the family Caproidae, of which it composes eleven of the family's twelve species. Antigonia carry the common name boarfish.
Like other zeiform fishes, boarfish have deep and thin bodies. Boarfish are generally small, with only a few species known to reach a maximum total length of 30 centimeters (12 inches). The classification of the boarfishes in the Zeiformes order is uncertain, since they have many perciform characters, for instance in the caudal skeleton. Coloration is usually red or pink.
