Brett Parker Possible Butter Fish?

Andy Horton Butterfish or Gunnel (presumably a misspelling of Gunwhale?). Occelated spots defintive. Pholis gunnellus. I actually prefer the name Gunnel despite the slippery nature of this fish. The reason is because another fish is also known as Butterfish. However, Butetrfish is so well established for this fish, it is the most usual common name.

Brett Parker Thanks

Penny Martin Lots of them around in Orkney waters , we even saw some over the winter when most of the others disappeared

Rudolf Svensen From yesterdays dive in Lysefjord, Norway. Still only 5 degrees centigrade in the water, but nice dive and lots of "stuff". Butterfish (Pholis gunnellus) in an Icelandic Cyprine (Arctica islandica). Nikon D300 in Subal housing. Subtrnic flashes, 60 mm Micro Nikkor, manual settings, f40, ISO 100, 1/80

Chris Barrett Does anyone have a relatively decent photo of the 2-spot goby (Gobiusculus flavescens) and/or butterfish (Pholis gunnellus) that you would be so kind as to let me use (with full credit to you) in a presentation that I'll be giving in Cork at the end of the month? Many thanks in advance

Erling Svensen No problem. Just sen an email to me that can receive big emails and I can send you pictures. my email is esvens@online.no

João Pedro Silva Chris Barrett, I've got a few. Not top quality but "presentable": http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/tags/gobiusculusflavescens/

Tony Gilbert Chris, I've quite a number of Butterfish images, as they are very common around N. Wales. Also have some 2-spot-goby shots. Are you doing a talk to a dive club - cos I may know some of them :-)
