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