Question from: Kasey, Maryland

I saw the picture of the roughtongue bass (http://oceanexplorer.noaa.gov/explorations/13pulleyridge/background/mce/media/figure_4.html) from one of the background essays on oceanexplorer.noaa.gov.

question about fish
I am curious if the fish in these pictures are the same fish. We saw it in ~100 m just off shore of Virginia. During the cruise we were unable to ID if from the northeast deep sea fish books we had on board.?

Answer from: Stacey Harter, NOAA

Those are actually Anthias nicholsi, the yellowfin bass.
