[UW Photo A089] Red Rock Cod


This is clearly a scorpion fish, though locals call it Red Rock Cod. I believe this is Eastern Red Scorpionfish, (i.e. Scorpaena jacksoniensis Steindachner).  This is small juvenile fish found in the sheltered water close to Sydney. Luckily, I was equipped with macro lens to capture it.
