Project Description

A small grunt sculpin (Rhamphocottus richardsonii) had its eye on me during a dive at Henderson Point, near Victoria.  This small fish looks amazing with its large head and small body, especially when it “hops” along the bottom on its pectoral fin rays.  The grunt sculpin grows to about 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) long with a range that includes Japan, and central Alaska to southern California.
