An interesting find! There

An interesting find! There are not too many records of this for the Inner Hebrides, so if you have no objections I would like to add this to the HBRG database, from where it will eventually get to the NBN Gateway map. The MARLIN map http://www.marlin.ac.uk/speciesinformation.php?speciesID=2723 suggests it is concentrated farther to the south.

Trigger-fish varieties?

Very interesting find. Ive heard about trigger fish turning up in lobster pots off this coast here in recent years(Co Antrim, not far from the above location at all), havent actually seen one for myself yet but I know theyve been caught. I hadnt actually heard the name Grey Trigger-fish til now and I just wonder are all the trigger fish popping up in our waters this species or do we get a variety?

Thanks.

Cathal.
