White spotted greenling

The dorsal fin has a notch in the midpoint; the forth lateral line doesn’t extend beyond the pelvic fin end. The first lateral line is short; it hardly reaches the midpoint of the spiky section of the dorsal fin. The right and left lines don’t cross on the back of the head. The body is covered by light spots. The species has a large habitat in Kamchatka waters. Its length may be up to 45 cm; the catch is usually presented by specimens 25-35 cm long with the weight of 900 g. The white spotted greenling is a coastal seafish; it often enters river estuaries. It lives on plant overgrown rocky ground, but is sometimes met in shallow waters. Spawning takes place in early summer.
This species is an object of sport fishing.
