Information about Coral Reef Fish:

Coral Reef Fish, as the name implies, are fish that inhabit the tropical coral reefs in the warm waters of the world’s oceans. They are integral parts of the ecosystem of the reef. Some of them use the coral itself to feed on, others provide food for the reef’s apex predators like the shark and barracuda. Fish of the coral reefs use various feeding strategies, which often means they have evolved specialized mouths and mouth parts which help them exploit different food sources in their habitat. Some fish are herbivores, feeding only on plant materials and algae. Many of the fish are brightly colored, which helps them camouflage themselves among the myriad of colors found in the reef’s corals and anemones. Other reef fish may school in large shoals to help protect themselves.

Many different types of fish inhabit the reefs, but most are ray-finned fishes, which are known for the characteristic sharp, bony rays and spines in their fins. There are many symbiotic relationships which exist in the reefs, usually where a specific species of fish lives in or around a type of coral, anemone or plant. Like the clownfish, that lives in and among the stinging tendrils of the anemone, but is immune to it’s toxins. In return, the clownfish fiercely defends it’s territory within the anemone.

These fish are all facing uncertain future, as the warming seas due to climate change and the fouling of the reefs from pollution is causing a worldwide decline.

American Shad – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the American Shad Fish:

The American Shad is a species of migrating herring native to the waters from southern Labrador in Canada south to northern Florida. Despite the name, they are not closely related to other shads. They are medium-sized fish, weighing roughly between three and eight pounds when fully grown. American Shads have a natural flavor that makes them a very desirable fish for the dinner table. The eggs of the fish (called roe) are considered a delicacy. Although most of the American Shad's life is spent at sea, it does travel up rivers to spawn. In 2003 the American Shad was declared the official fish for the state of Connecticut.

The Atlantic Cod is a benthopelagic fish that belongs to the family Gadidae. It is also commercially known as cod, codling or haberdine. They are commonly found in from the shoreline out to the continental shelf. Cod are native to the waters north of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and around both coasts of Greenland in the western parts of the Atlantic Ocean. In the east it's found from the Bay of Biscay north to the Arctic Ocean, including the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, Sea of the Hebrides, areas around Iceland and the Barents Sea. The Atlantic Cod can grow to be about 6 feet long (two meters) and weigh roughly 200 pounds (100 kilograms) These are long lived fish, and some individuals can make it to 25 years. Its habitat ranges from the shoreline down to the continental shelf. Back in the 1990 several cod stocks collapsed in the 1990s, with populations falling to below 95% of their normal sizes. Even with a ban on fishing for them the populations have failed to recover. The Atlantic Cod is considered "vulnerable" and is on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is the state fish of Massachusetts.

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Pygmy Seahorse:

The Pygmy Seahorse is a also known as Bargibanti's is a fish of the family Syngnathidae found in the western central Pacific Ocean. It is one of the smallest seahorses in the world, generally less than an inch long (2 centimeters) It lives exclusively on sea fan corals. Because of its camouflage, the species wasn't discovered until its host gorgonian was being examined in a laboratory. Scientists believe other, similar, species remain to be found. The Pygmy Seahorse is found in coastal areas ranging from southern Japan and Indonesia to northern Australia and New Caledonia on reefs and slopes at a depth of 16-130 feet (5–40 meters). Large, bulbous tubercles cover its body and match the color and shape of the polyps of its host species of gorgonian coral, while its body matches the gorgonian stem. It is not known whether individuals can change color if they change hosts.

Unlike other seahorses, Hippocampus abdominalis is a fairly strong swimmer. The pot-bellied seahorse diet consists mainly of crustaceans such as shrimp. They will also eat different kind of small fishes, so long as they fit through the narrow snout of the animal. They are also popular aquarium fish.

Black Seadevil – Signed Fine Art Print

Information about the Black Seadevil:

The Black Seadevil or Anglerfish is one of only five members of the genus Melanocetus. Only two of these have common names. Black seadevils are characterised by a gelatinous, globose body, a large head, and large, sharp, glassy, fang-like teeth lining the jaws of a cavernous, oblique mouth. Like other anglerfishes, black seadevils possess an illicium and esca; the former being a modified dorsal spine—the "fishing rod"—and the latter being the bulbous, bioluminescent "fishing lure". The esca is simple in black seadevils (with either a conical terminus or anterior and posterior ridges in some species), and both it and the illicium are free of denticles.
