Fish on Friday

Seen here is the vermilion rock fish, better known during my childhood as a red snapper. This fish is part of the catch of the week snapped at the aquarium in Monterey, where the folks remind people to order fish with the delicate ocean environment and sustainable, responsible fisheries in mind.

Anchovies are already packed close together -- just scoop them into the can and you're done. Actually, they put on a great show, coalescing into a compact mass, splitting off into small groups, swirling about, and re-coalescing.

Usually my sunfish pictures are of the sailing dinghies -- but here's an ocean sunfish seen at close range.
