Hatchet Fish

Unique Hatchet Fish Wall Light

Hatchet Fish occur world wide, but mostly live in the western Pacific and is named for its flat body shape that looks like a hatchet. Most have patches around their mouths, which seem to attract prey. When they are dying, their bodies will glow with a blue-green light.

The facts collected to describe each fish were pulled from various sources over the internet by Sealight Gallery's staff. Sealight wants to acknowledge that we did not write any of the material in regard to the descriptions, but we found the information collected fascinating. We hope that in reprinting it readers will be inspired by it to save and preserve the ocean and all of her glory.
