Martine is an excellent fisher woman – here with a Red Rock Cod

The Eastern Red Scorpionfish colouration is highly variable from light grey/brown to bright red with blotches or may also be a mottling of all these colours and blotches. They have skin flaps on the head, lateral line and other parts of the body, 12 venomous spines on the dorsal fin and a very large mouth. Don’t touch the spines, they hurt for about three hours.
And they are excellent eating, one of the best in the sea. Also known as ‘poor mans lobster’
