Catch of the day: Quillfish

Not much is known about the daytime habits of the quillfish, though it’s speculated that it burrows into the sandy or muddy ocean floor. At night it swims snakily to the surface, attracted by the lights of fishing boats. Quillfish range all along the BC coast and as far north as Alaska.

You can see more of my paintings from the same series here on my website. And be sure to check back next Monday for another ‘Catch of the Day’!
