(Cuvier, 1829)


William B. Tomanek

A.j. O'Rourke Stone Fish

Alan Duncan Scorpionfish... ;-)

Bert Ras It's a scorpionfish, but it's called a False Stonefish! ;)

Alan Duncan Really, what species of Scorpionfish is it? Very difficult to tell of course.

Alan Duncan Cool, i thought it looked more like Scorpaenopsis venosa, but it's difficult to tell from the front.

Darrell Broome I appreciate and respect the work that you do. I am concerned about the future of our Oceans and all Marine Life. I constantly try to research and share information with the public. I would like to be friends with you if possible. Thank you.

Stefan Follows RIP Sid :( For many years Sid the Scorpianfish has always been in the same spot day after day. A mainstay for my photography Students and divers. Unfortunately he's not been in 'his' spot for the past weeks so one can only assume mortality has caught up with the mighty grumpy one!
