Velvetfish Stock Video Footage


Little velvetfishes or simply velvetfishes are a family, the Aploactinidae, of scorpaeniform fishes. As the name implies, they are small fish that have skin with a velvet texture. They are generally flattened in shape, with small pelvic fins, and a fleshy pad under the head, which, in at least one species, forms a sucker for attaching the fish to the sea floor. Some also have venomous spines. They live on the sea bottom close to the shore, at depths of up to 100 metres (330 ft).
