Rock Flathead

This shot was taken locally in some deeper water near Three Mile Reef off Hillarys Marina in Perth. The Flathead often lies like this, camouflages in the sand awaiting its prey. The dorsal spines on this fish are poisonous, but they are an excellent table fish.

  1. Incredible! I'm in awe that you even spotted this fish, it's so well disguised I'm sure most would have passed right over it! I didn't realise they were good to eat, interesting fact.
