    Abstract

    ICAR-Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) scientists have found alive a rare fish that changes colour and carries neurotoxic venom in its spines, for the first time in Indian waters. Camouflaged within the seagrass meadows, the band-tail scorpionfish (Scorpaenospsis neglecta) was found off Sethukari coast in the Gulf of Mannar during an underwater exploratory survey of the seagrass ecosystem in the region. Dr. R. Jeyabaskaran, Senior Scientist, ICAR-CMFRI led the team of researchers.
