From Wikipedia- Lumpfish or Lumpsuckers-

Cyclopterus lumpus

Lumpsuckers or lumpfish are mostly small scorpaeniform marine fish of the family Cyclopteridae. They are found in the cold waters of the Arctic, North Atlantic, and North Pacific oceans. The greatest number of species are found in the North Pacific.

The roe of Cyclopterus lumpus, known as the stenbider (literally "stone biter") in Danish or stenbit in Swedish, is used extensively in Scandinavian cuisine. The roe is also used as an affordable alternative to the caviar produced by sturgeons.

The family name Cyclopteridae derives from the Greek words κύκλος (kyklos), meaning "circle", and πτέρυξ (pteryx), meaning "wing" or "fin", in reference to the circle-shaped pectoral fins of most of the fish that comprise this family.

    What an amazing looking fish. Really cute in a lumpy, face only a mother lumpfish could love kinda way. It doesn’t look like it would taste very good.

    That’s a shocking thing to see at 6:30am over coffee….. especially here in Michigan where we never encounter that sort of critter.
