Another weird looking fish

Some people were out turbot fishing June 8 and pulled up this strange fish they had never seen before.  They put it on the steps of the school for everyone to go have a look at.  I think it was around a foot and a half in length, maybe a bit longer.  They figure it's a bottom-feeder of some sort.  If anyone recognizes it, leave a comment...

  1. It is hard to tell from the photo, but I suspect it might be a snailfish. About the best site I've found for identifying Arctic fish (and other creatures) is this one... (this is the link to the fish page but you'll find others off the home page)
