Lingcod, Ophiodon elongatus, Giant plumed anemone, Metridium farcimen
Large lingcod (Ophiodon elongatus) are seldom seen in areas under heavy
fishing pressure. At Hopkins Deep Reef, one encounters mostly runty ones like
this. Though, the fisherman's heartbreak may be the photographers joy: small
lingcod are nicely proportioned against a  backdrop of Metridium
