Description

My first frogfish in Fiji, and I only ended up with this lousy photo. I found it, called over some other divers, turned back and it had disappeared. These guys don't normally move...

Description from Wikipedia

Anglerfishes are members of the teleost order Lophiiformes /ˌlɒfiːəˈfɔrmiːz/. They are bony fishes named for their characteristic mode of predation, in which a fleshy growth from the fish's head (the esca or illicium) acts as a lure.

No range data available.
