Researchers at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) have found a rare fish in the Gulf of Manner.
- During finding, it is camouflaged within the seagrass meadows
- This bandtail Scorpion fish (Scorpaenospsisneglecta) is well known for its stinging venomous spines and ability to change colour
- The fish is called ‘scorpionfish’ because its spines contain neurotoxic venom. When the spines pierce an individual, the venom gets injected immediately and it can be extremely painful.
