The big sculpin is a red Irish lord. The rockfish is a brown, flatfish are notoriously hard, at least for me. That last critter is Homo sapiens subaqueous.

Cool! Looks like you found a red irish lord in the piling. There's also a pile perch in there. The rest are hard to tell.

Hey guys! I was hoping someone could help me out identifying some of the critters from my latest dive. I know the Alabaster Nudibrach, Red cucumber etc. In particular, which Rockfish, sculpins and flatfish.
