Some guy boiled those shrimps and started eating but then he got something on his plate that was NOT a shrimp. So, we’ve naturally have a question to all fishers – WHAT’s this?
First – yum!
it’s a janitor fish. look it up on google
thats not a janitor fish its dorsal fin is on it tail instead of its back like a janitor fish.
and its not a baby sturgeon because sturgeon have an extended snout and the mouth is on the underside of it. this fish has a normally hinged jaw
It is a seahorse. I have seen them many a time. I live on the Gulf Coast.
It looks like some kind of sturgeon baby. Nothing to worry about.
Yep. Sturgeon. BTW, (if anyone catches my drift on this), who’s on first.
whats on second?
I don’t know is on third.
I don’t know what it is, but I do know that it is not a sea horse or a gobi.
It’s a fish.
I don’t know?
What’s on second
It looks like a seahorse actually…
Dan is right. it’s a Neogobius melanostomus (Goby fish)
thats go gobi fish.
Its a Gobi, our Canadian waterways are now infested with these fish from the bilge tanks of russian tankers.
On english russia everything is strange.
maybe we should get them a book on different land and water species
Dragon, a small one.
Did it taste as good as the shrimp? If it does, you might be on to something.
Some one found the same stuff over here in Sweden also
Highly fascinating, I had to look this up. It’s indeed a prawn goby (symbiosis with prawns), which failed to warn one of the shrimps on the plate
Its an alien
It’s a rectal parasite, maybe from a fisherman that was involved in shrimp fishing. Bon appetit!!
THANK you for that oh so appetizing mental image. I’m going to go find some brain bleach now.
could be a remora.
not a remora they have a friction pad on top of their head
it’s not a sturgeon . sturgeon have a mouth on the very bottom, the mouth has no teeth and is completely round
It’s a seahorse
that is poor seahorse..
Baby of the Dragon Head Yellow Fish.
It’s a gurnard, Bernard.
I also believe that it’s a gurnard. It’s certainly not a seahorse. The snout is much too short for that.
i would agree, however the gurnard also has a distinctive dorsal fin and no bony plates or ridges like the those on this fish
the head looks like a dragon…
but the body is like a fish…
its a Farlowella Cat Fish. might be a royal
that’s a seahorse. the curl tail becomes straight when they are dead for some incident.
It’s a booger!!
It is a demon fish and if U eat it, you will shoot sparks through your *ss. Actually,,,,it is pretty cool looking. Wear it a medallion.
ya, i looked at pictures of all of the suggestions, and it looks the most like a farowella catfish to me
agreed, it is MOST like the Farlowella, however again the farlowella has a dorsal fin which is quite close the head and it also lacks any dorsal depression along the body, like what is seen in the photo. however it seems possible that it could be a close relative and the dorsal depression seen in the pic may be the result of being dead and dried out.
It’s a stretched-out sea-horse.
Like a goby. Goby fish share burrows with shrimp, forming a symbiotic relationship. A shrimp has poor eyesight and their partner goby “patrols” the vicinity of their burrow. When a threat arises, like the arrival of a predator, the goby alerts the shrimp with a flick of its tail and they both retreat inside the burrow for safety.
Effects of the Chernobyl disaster…
OMG IT’S A BABY SEA MONSTER!!
it’s a fish, they aren’t that strange…
so far it seems to most closely resemble a variation nearest to a bay pipefish
It’s a seahorse.
it’s a straightened sea-horse, clearly!
its called posinar. there is plenty of it off the gulf of guinea around Ghana
It’s Babel Fish! as in hitchhikers’ guide to the galaxy.
looks similiar though
I am torn apart between a new species or a mind controlling parasite that bites you on the hind-head then you are at his mercy like the real cat related parasite toxoplasma gondii which makes you a cat lover. This is a fact look it up technically it makes you more fond of a cats stench leading to cat-philia.
By the way I am not actually saying I do believe this thing that came in some guys shrimp is a controlling parasite just saying that if it jumped towards me I would be really frightened. But the cat-o-philia causing parasite is as real as cats them selves.
It only makes animals hunted by cats more attracted to them. It causes delayed reaction time and schizophrenia in humans.
My brother..OH…no! That’s my brother,You..human!! Look wht have u done 2 my Lovely brother..All fish bless you…
It’s a pipe fish; google it.
Farlowella. not a seahorse, a goby, or a tuna.
It looks like a ancient fish.
Ita a…… HOAX! Godblime!
It is not a pipefish, farlowella, seahorse, goby, tuna, whatever… It’s called a Grandiose Vermelter and they’re only found in the Baltic Sea. Very rare to catch an intact specimen as they are known to turn themselves inside out upon capture.
I’ll find it for 3,000 but i’ll catch it and kill it for 10.
10 thou you get the head, the tail, the whole damn fish
It’s a Mud Skipper…
There are different types, so I don’t know the exact species.
its a dead sea horse, depending on how they die they can straighten right out
They sell this at kitchens stores.Its a takes off the shell and deveins the shrimp. Its not a living thing . They sure got yall on this one.
lol a dead seahorse straightened out ? come on..
It’s a Agonus cataphractus…
It’s a Dover Sole. Rolled up.
I’ll take dead fish for $500. Alex…
It’s a pokemon.
It looks like a baby dragon.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agonus_cataphractus, it is Commons as a by-catch when one is Fishing for Prawns, totally harmless
