142056 Boar Fish Capros aper Length to 25cm
Bizarre and unmistakable fish. Typically lives near seabed in deep water. But occasionally occurs inshore (or beached, dead) especially in winter, possibly after surviving trawling bycatch. Adult is laterally flattend, rhomboid in side-on profile with a tall, spiny 1st dorsal fin and very large eyes. Scarce in inshore waters, SW only.
