Discover Mediterranean XXXIV

Photos by George Reclos / MCH

Original drawing in "Guid d'identification des poissons marins Europe et Mediterranee" by Patrick Louisy

Two brown rockfish (Scorpaena porcus) stay motionless at the bottom. As you can see, they don't always stay on rocks (top photo). This fish, not exceeding 25 cm when fully grown is - like all Scorpaena - a nocturnal predator with venomous spines which paralyze its pray. Its venom is painful to humans but is thermally inactivated quickly. All photos shot in July / August 2003 in Saronic Gulf (Aegean Sea).
