Silverspotted Sculpin Video Stock Footage

Blepsias cirrhosus, the silverspotted sculpin, is a scorpaeniform marine fish in the sea raven family Hemitripteridae, native to the northern Pacific Ocean from the Sea of Japan and Alaska to San Miguel Island off southern California. Its name originates from its elongated, sail-like first dorsal fin the sailfin sculpin is also a popular subject in public aquariums. The fish exhibits a preying behavior of overrunning its prey, by rapidly accelerating just prior to capture, which it shares with other pelagic species such as Largemouth bass. This differs from other sculpin species that reside near the shore, such as the tidepool sculpin that instead decelerate during prey capture.
