Scorpion Cod on Key Biscayne Wreck at Lancelin WA
This Scorpion Cod was among some hard and soft corals on the base of the wreck of the Key Biscayne, a drilling rig that sank during a storm in 1983 whilst being towed to Fremantle for repair. The rig lies upside down in 42 metres of clear water and is on a sandy bottom. The fish is extremely well camouflaged and difficult to see, but the beady eye gives it away!
