  1. Wow. now that’s one weird fish.
    Sorry, not a marine biologist.
    It looks like a mutant grouper to me.

  2. Looks like Howard*.

    *(One of the fish from Monty Python’s “The Meaning of Life” that was “being eaten”).

  3. It’s an Asian sheepshead (Semicossyphus reticulatus), a type of NW Pacific wrasse (family Labridae).

  4. Cool fish. Looks incredibly prehistoric!

    Are the Asian ones all born female and change sex if/when needed like the ones in California? Favorite part of marine biology camp in grade school! Well, close tie with kissing the sea cucumbers.
