If you’ve ever been down to Cozumel, Mexico, you’ve been to one of two places (the other being Glover’s Reef in Belize) on earth that this species of fish can be found.
Meet the Deep-Sea Dragonfish
The Deep-Sea Dragonfish, a scaleless eel-like fish about 6 inches in length that lives (you guessed it) in the deep sea, specifically the bathyal zone of the Atlantic Ocean beyond where any light can reach.
Their common name comes from the Ojibwa word maashkinoozhe, which translates to “ugly pike”.
Butterflyfish area group of around 120 species in the Family Chaetodontidae. The one in this weeks #SundayFishSketch is the Copperband butterflyfish.
This Whale Shark #SundayFishSketch comes from Ichthyologist, Rene Martin.
