Naso brevirostris can reach a maximum length of 60 centimetres (24 in). These fishes have an elongate, oval body, with a short snout and a small, protrusible mouth. They are olivaceous brown to bluish grey in color, with a prominent horn, many small dark spots on head and short irregular lines on sides of body. The anterior part of the body is rather pale. The tail is whitish with dark blotch. The caudal knives are relatively larger in males (sexual dimorphism). These fishes have six dorsal spines, 27-29 dorsal soft rays and 27-30 anal soft rays. Subadults show dark spots on head and body, while juveniles lack the prominent horn. This species is listed as "least concern" on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and there are no observed declines as a result of commercial or recreational fishing.
