Congrat Marek, your beautiful gurnard from the Aegean Sea is our Spotting of the Day!Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...Twitter: https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/4...
You may be right, Mark. At least we have pointed out at the genus, which is quite good :-)
Hi Marta. It seems there are hundreds of similar gurnards around the world but the one endemic to that part of the world is C lucerna and this might be juvenile.
In this web site is also described as found in Greece among other places:http://wildfish.co.nz/portfolio/red-gurn...It makes me wonder if they ever entered the Mediterranean as fish discarded by fisher boats which were still alive when dumped to the waters? (since they are usually fished).
In the Wiki says is a Pacific fish, however it must have made its way to Greek waters since it is the only gurnard I can find that looks like it! :-)
Nice. It looks a bit like a Flying gurnard (Dactylopterus volitans) - maybe a relative?
