Scorpaenidae, the scorpionfish, are a family of mostly marine fish that includes many of the world's most venomous species. As the name suggests, scorpionfish have a type of "sting" in the form of sharp spines coated with venomous mucus.
They are widespread in tropical and temperate seas, but mostly found in the Indo-Pacific.
