Fish of the Month
Ocean Whitefish, Caulolatilus princeps: The Ocean Whitefish is characterized by its overall light blue-grey appearance, and long anal and dorsal fins that maintain their width throughout their length. The anal and dorsal fins have a yellow line and a white line at their margins and the pectoral fins have strong yellow and blue components (as pictured below). Their mouths end well before the eyes. There is a dark pit below and in front of the eyes that is brown in coloration, and at times there is a dark blotch on the gill covers. The caudal fin is yellow and concave.
The Ocean Whitefish is easily confused with Hubb’s Tilefish, Canlolatilus hubbsi(which has a large mouth, thick fleshy lips, a blunt straight caudal fin, and a black spot at the base of the pectoral fin), and the Pacific Golden-Eye Tilefish,Canlolatilus affinis (a less forked caudal fin and a yellow stripe below and in front of the eye).
The Ocean Whitefish is a member of the Malacanthidae Family which are also known as Tilefishes and Blanquillos.
