Cabezon

Latin Name:  Scorpaenichthys marmoratus

General Size:  15" x 7"

In Spanish "cabezon" means "big head" and that becomes very evident when looking at this sculpin. The 300 members of the sculpins are found in the Cottidae family and the cabezon is the largest representative. The cabezon can be found on the Pacific coast off Mexico, California and north to Alaska. The males of this species guard eggs masses that are poisonous to mammals if eaten. The fillets of the cabezon are a slightly green in hue however it is safe to eat. These ambush hunters feed on crabs, shrimp, snails, clams, worms, fish and octopods. The specimen shown was found to have an octopus the size of a man's fist in its stomach. These fish may reach a size of up to 30 inches and weigh as much as 30 pounds.
