    Excellent diary as usual, but I would like to point out that even though the fish gets its most common name from the North Atlantic, it is actually found throughout the world's oceans. They are quite common just off the reefs in the Hawaiian islands, off of Australia, and Indonesia where they are sometimes called by the UK based vernacular "frog fish". They are collected in substantial numbers here in Hawaii for the aquarium industry.

    I love the diary, but this fish isn't as "specialized" as you seem to infer.

    A good source of info. for this and most fish species is fishbase.com
