Meet the long nose lancetfish!

lancetfish2Okay, so several of you guys properly identified this species as the long nose lancet fish when it appeared in our Name that Fish Contest. I kinda thought I’d stump ya a little longer that I did, but impress me, you did, Grasshoppers!

Anyway, I received several emails from folks who have seen these things — including one from Ben Rasmussen who was nice enough to pass along some photos of one he found that was still alive near Dillon Beach (about 1.5 hours north of San Francisco).
