First Angler Fish of the season

02.04.2009

Last 27th of March close to Cala Figuera, diving in Punta Catius dive site, we saw the first Angler Fish (Lophius Piscatorius) of the season. This fish is normally observed during the spring months when the water temperature is in his lowest point and the fish come to feed from deeper waters. The one that we saw was at 20 meters of depth and has a length of 60-65 cm. As is shown in the picture, the Angler Fish trust completely in his camouflage making very easy to swim close to him to observe it.

When the temperature of the water start to rise 2 or 3 degrees, he will dive into deeper waters making the chance of seen him very difficult. We hope to see more of this fantastic fish in the next dives.
