A great find

A great find

During the Bokkafushi island trip, Jude spied a ‘False Stonefish’ from the surface at a depth of around 6m- super spotting! Taken from their Latin name of Scorpaenopsis diabolus, they are sometimes referred to as ‘Devil Scorpionfish’.

This species of scorpionfish is quite rare here in Laamu Atoll. This is the first we have spotted in ten months.
