Caption: Large-scaled scorpionfish (Scorpaena scrofa) in a net. This fish is edible. A scorpionfish is a solitary fish that hides around rocks and marine plants, and then ambushes its prey of small fish, crustaceans and other invertebrates. S. scrofa can reach a length of 50 centimetres. A scorpionfish has a row of spines on its back, linked to poison glands for defence. The venom is dangerous to humans who may step on a camouflaged scorpionfish. S. scrofa is found in the temperate waters of the north-eastern Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Photographed off Levant Island, France, in the north-western Mediterranean Sea.
