Frogfishes (Family Antennaridae) Of North Carolina

Record #:
Four species of frogfishes occur in North Carolina waters: the ocellated frogfish, singlespot frogfish, striated frogfish, and the sargassumfish. Other than their general ranges, little is known about them. Schwartz discusses the distribution and size of these creatures found in North Carolina and why their occurrences, except the sargassumfish, have been scarce since the 1980s.
