Fish #81 Northern Rockling Ciliata septentrionalis ~ Peter Beck

Acrylic and oil pastels 41 x 51 cm

Northern Rockling

Although this is a common species with no obvious threats, the plastic pollution which sits in our seas bears a huge threat to all marine life. The northern rocking can be found in the north-east Atlantic mostly around the British Isles, but can be found as far north as northern Norway, the Faeroe Islands and Iceland. It is usually found between 10 - 90 meters deep but the creature also likes to sit on the sand or mud bottoms of the ocean. The northern rocking can usually be found eating all sorts of crustaceans such as crab and lobster. This fish which can grow up to 20cm is usually preyed upon by the Atlantic cod.
