Yarrell's blenny- Chirolophis ascani

Yarrell's blenny lives among algeas and like hard bottom and rocks. In the corner in Oksebåsen we have a crack, that goes from the surface all the way down to the bottom at 60 meters, and here you can found this little fish at around 10 to 30 meters.

Yarrell's blenny has very distinct bushy tentacles above each eye  and it has an eel-like body. It can grow up to 25 cm. The male blenny has additional bushy tentacles on the front of the dorsal fin. This blenny has a more northern distribution and can be found up here in Saltstraumen.

Carl von Linne - Carolus a Linné

Carl von Linne - Carolus a Linné

Carl von Linné  (13. mai 1707 - 10. jan 1778) was a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, who laid the foundations for the modern scheme of binomial nomenclature. He is known as the father of modern taxonomy, and is also considered one of the fathers of modern ecology. Many of his writings were in Latin, and his name is rendered in Latin as Carolus Linnæus (after 1761 Carolus a Linné).
