Caption: Tompot blenny (Parablennius gattorugine) on the seabed. This is a common bottom-dwelling fish found throughout the north-eastern Atlantic Ocean, including the Mediterranean, but excluding the North Sea. It prefers to rest in holes between rocks or on wrecks, down to depths of around 20-30 metres. It feeds mostly on crustaceans such as shrimp. It may reach a length of up to 30 centimetres, although normally it is around 20cm long. Photographed in the Mediterranean Sea.
