The Pacific goosefish, Lophiodes caulinaris, has a large, broad flattened body with a large mouth-full of sharp curved teeth. The goosefish has a modified dorsal spine on the top of its head that it uses like a fishing lure. It feeds by waiting on the sandy or muddy ocean floor, while attracting small fish and crustaceans with its lure. The Pacific goosefish can grow to 44.5 cm (17.5 inches) in length. It is rare to capture a close-up video of this fish.
