Giant blenny

The Giant blenny lives in the demersal, marine, depth range 0 - 10 m environment.

It is a giant blenny, and has a nice flavour, no bones and a medium texture. Confined to the Northern Atlantic, more of a scottish fish then an english fish, so it has a low profile here. Heads are cute/ugly, but make excellent fish head curry. More

such as the giant blenny and the red-lipped batfish, which looks more like a toadfish. On one dive, we were about to get into the water with cameras poised, when some killer whales went past the end of the inflatable. More

A Giant Blenny rests in a niche on a shallow wall on eastern San Pedro Nolasco Island. More
