Fish #85 Blue Ling Molva dypterygia ~ Vasile Nicolae
Acrylic on canvas
I am a beautiful creature that lives deep in the sea. I feed on gobies, crustaceans and squid. My eyes are large and I twist and turn with my long , slender body. I am a member of the cod family.
The trawlermen find me valuable and I am caught by them for human consumption and occasionally reduced to fishmeal. Please don't target me when I'm spawning as my species is severely depleted. I am the Blue Ling, Molva dypteryia. Treat me with respect.

Watercolour on paper 16 x 24 cm
A relative of the White Ling, Molva molva, commonly found on the continental shelf at depths of 600-1,000 metres in the Rockall Trough and Norwegian trench, and at shallower depths in the Faroe-Shetland Channel. It is a hard fighting predator with a powerful body, long fins, large eye and sharp teeth - the perfect attributes for hunting fish in deep water.
