I think this is my first post about ocean dwelling fish but I think I must share this info with you guys. For all the amateur Ichthyology among us. The Slippery Dick fish is quite rare indeed!. Stupid and funny. I wonder why they name this fish the Slippery Dick? Of all the names you can come up with why choose Slippery Dick? My friends lol'ed when I told them slippery dick is a fish.
