Expedition Photo of the Day: Inquisitive Blenny

© Oceana/Eduardo Sorensen

With all the great footage we’re getting from our research vessel in the Gulf, I wanted to highlight some of my  favorite photos with a new daily feature.

This inquisitive blenny sticks his head out in the Florida Middle Grounds off the West Florida Shelf in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, roughly 100 miles from shore. Like all blennies, it has a long body, a single long dorsal fin, and peg-like pelvic fins, which it uses to prop itself up.

Be sure to check out all our footage from the expedition – photos, videos, blogs - updated every day!
