UGLIEST FISH
Dory fish are painful to look at, but are a popular food fish--better buy fillets.

batfish

Batfishes have broad, flat heads and slim bodies and are covered with hard lumps and spines.

goblin

Gobblin' sharks are rarely seen alive. The latest specimen was caught off the coast of Japan and is on display in Tokyo Sea Life Park.

synodus

The Diamond Lizardfish lives among the coral reefs off Hawaii and Australia.

dogtooth

Dog-toothed characins have a problem with teeth it seems. The problem appears to be they borrowed them from a sabre-toothed tiger, and despite the fact they don't really fit, and they haven't given them back

firefly squid

A luminescent deep-sea squid, indigenous to northern Japan. Females carrying fertilized eggs come inshore each spring by the hundreds of millions, even a billion, to lay eggs in Toyama Bay (max. depth, 1200 m) and die, thereupon completing a 1-year life cycle.

frilled

The frilled shark is easily mistaken as a sea serpant. Its means of locomotion is movement of its eel-like body.

lamprey

An aggressive parasite, the lamprey eel is equipped with a tooth-filled mouth used to attach itself to host fish such as salmon.

fangtooth

Fangtooth fish have the market cornered on the gross factor.
