About this species

The most distinguishing mark is a silvery-white blotch where an ear may be on a fish if fish had ears....it is actually on its gill cover or opercle. Otherwise the fish is brownish-black, although the juveniles of the species are colourful. Larger adults may have blue dots on the tail. Log the white-ear if you spot south of St Helens. Read more…
