Friday Fish: Congiopodus peruvianus

The return of the Friday Fish after too long away. This is a Pigfish, presumably with the common name "Peruvian Pigfish". OK, that's it, I'm done with these idiotic common names.

"Hey, look, it has some kind of snout-like thing going on! Let's name it after a pig!"

Gah! No more!
