Description

Kelp Greenling (Hexagrammos decagrammus)

These fish live in shallow reefs to depths of 25 fathoms. They are found from the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, to La Jolla, California.

Kelp Greenling spawn in the fall, laying beautiful blue eggs (portrayed here as their blue spots). The females attach these eggs to rocks and they are then guarded by the male.

What appear to be eye lashes which give them quite a glamorous look are a pair of cirri.

They feed on shrimp, small crabs (pictured here as their brown spots) polychaete worms, small fishes and the siphons of clams.
