Ichthyology student Jahnava Duryea shows off a fine-looking specimen of cabezon (Scorpaenichthys marmoratus) during fish tagging surveys of Central California’s marine protected areas with the California Collaborative Fisheries Research Program.  Cabezon are the largest members of the sculpin family, dwarfing their cousin sculpins that can fit in the palm of your hand.  What punks.
