This week's FFF is all about the Penpoint Gunnel. (Apodichthys flavidus).
The Penpoint gunnel is generally between 10-20cm long but can grow to 46cm (1.5 feet). They are found is shades of green, maroon and brown. You can easily identify them by the light spots along their body and the dark stripe through their eyes.
It can be found from Alaska all the way down to southern California. They are an intertidal species that prefer to live in vegetation but will live in the sand/rocks in the winter.
