Pomadasys commersonnii, the smallspotted grunter, is a species of grunt native to the shores of the western Indian Ocean from India to South Africa, being found in brackish and marine waters and occasionally into fresh waters. This species can produce a jet of water to clear away mud to reveal benthic invertebrates upon which it feeds. It can reach 80 cm (31 in) in TL. It is also important commercially and is a popular game fish.
