Info

Sea bats are poor swimmers, moving on soft bottoms with the help of their pectoral fins.
Since benthic fish move very little, so they rely mostly on their food coming to them, or being easy to reach.

A good aid to attract prey is the fishing organ (Illicium) formed from the dorsal fin, which is also known from other armfins (frogfishes).

The little guy came aboard the research vessel NOAA OREGON II as part of the NOAA Teacher at Sea Program research project.
