Sea tadpole – a rare catch

Published by under Fish and fishing

Trawling in the Norwegian Sea may give strange species to the catch. The pictures in this post shows two sea tadpole which was taken when trawling for blue whiting.

The sea tadpole (Careproctus reinhardti) is rarely more than 30 cm. long and it has no color. You can see straight through the fish as the blood and the veins give the fish a touch of red or pink. This fish is found in deep waters in the northern part of The Atlantic ocean.
