Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The armored searobins, or armored gurnards are a family, Peristediidae, of scorpaeniform fishes.They are found in deep tropical waters around the world. They are related to the searobins in the family Triglidae - and some authorities classify them in that family- but they are encased in heavy scales with prominent spines. They have prominent and often elaborate barbels on their chins.Scorpaeniformes is an order of ray-finned fish, but it has also been called the Scleroparei.They are known as "mail-cheeked" fishes due to their distinguishing characteristic, the suborbital stay: a backwards extension of the third circumorbital bone across the cheek to the preoperculum, to which it is connected in most species.show more
