Snailfish: Liparis sp.


This fish tends to lie curled up (as in the photo). There are several species in the region including the Marbled Snailfish, Showy Snailfish, Tidepool Snailfish, and Spotted Snailfish. The species above resembles the Marbled Snailfish in markings, but it was found in a tidepool, whereas Marbled Snailfish are generally found at great depths.
