Variously called "dark rockfish", "dark dusky rockfish", "dark form of the dusky rockfish" or "dark morph of the dusky rockfish".
According to "Assessment of pelagic shelf rockfish in the Gulf of Alaska" (2009) at http://www.afsc.noaa.gov/REFM/docs/2009/GOApelshelf.pdf : "The forms of dusky rockfish commonly recognized as “light dusky rockfish” and “dark dusky rockfish” are now officially recognized as two species (Orr and Blackburn 2004). S. ciliatus applies to the dark shallow-water species with a common name dark rockfish, and S. variabilis applies to variably colored deeper-water species with the common name dusky rockfish."
