Cool fish!

This year in New Bedford we caught a fish we do not often catch!

This is a Flying Gurnard (Dactylopterus volitans). Check out that blue coloration! It is a bottom dwelling fish related to the sea robin and has spines all over it's head, including two that extend from the gill covers. Thanks to the Our Sisters School in New Bedford for sending us the pictures!
