Project Description

It’s always a highlight to find a grunt sculpin (Rhamphocottus richardsonii) on a dive.  This small fish looks amazing with its large head and small body, especially as it walks and 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.
