Caption: Barrelfish (Hyperoglyphe perciformis). This large fish lives in deep water over continental shelves, with the adults in rocky canyons, while the young are more common at the surface. The young reach up to 30 centimetres in length, found under floating boards, boxes and barrels. They feed on small fish and crustaceans. The adults can be 90 centimetres in length. It is found in temperate waters in the north-western Atlantic Ocean. Juveniles crossing the Atlantic Ocean with floating boxes are thought to account for rare sightings in the north-eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean. Photographed by Levant Island, France, north-western Mediterranean Sea. A previous sighting off Marseilles dates to 1880.
