Meet the Flying Gurnard

The New England Aquarium has finished renovating the Giant Ocean Tank. At the top level of the tank, some small exhibits have been added. One of them features a flying gurnard (a fish). They’re not native to New England, but apparently this one hitched a ride on the Gulf Stream and was rescued by the NE Aquarium:

Personally, I think it looks like one of those weird flies with ‘painted’ wings. Anyway, here’s a close up:

  1. Gurnard is native here in the UK. We had one for supper last week. Very tasty.
