Tub Gurnard

Easily confused with the red gurnard, as sometimes a tub gurnard can be redder than a red gurnard! The pectoral fins are therefore the best way of identifying this species - if blue is present on these fins it is a tub gurnard, if no blue is present then it is a red gurnard.
I am passionate about our beautiful landscape and coastline and hope to convey something of the glory of our surroundings as well as the instability and fragility of the environment and our times. I chose to use non-recyclable packaging and recycled materials for this project to help make visible the connection between our daily lives and environmental concerns.
