Scientific name: Serranus scriba
It lives in shallow waters of up to 30 meters between rocks and areas of sand and posidonia, although sometimes we can see them inside sponges. They spawn near the shore leaving the eggs attached to the rocks at the bottom. They are carnivorous fish.
They are a very curious fish who like to stare at the diver and also like to observe octopuses when they move about the bottom of the sea.
