Feeding to Skilfish (at Numazu Deepsea Aquarium)

Blue Corner Magazine 

At Numazu Deepsea Aquarium, they have Skilfish (Erilpis zonifer). The fish was collected by trapped cage. Suddenly the fisherman who collected the fish contacted us in January and we went to pick up the fish. The size of the fish is about 80-90 cm TL, which is very good size. The fish inhabit deep rocky bottom like 400 m deep. But some people say the fish sometimes inhabit around 1000 m deep. A fisherman says that the fish is delicious but it’s very oily. If you eat many, your stomach won’t be tolerated. At the Numazu Deepsea Aquarium, the fish started eating in the tank. It’s very rare. Please enjoy the Youtube video.
