Sebastidae (Rockfish)

Wikipedia Abstract

Sebastidae is a family of marine fish in the order Scorpaeniformes. Their common names include rockfishes, rock perches, ocean perches, sea perches, thornyheads, scorpionfishes, sea ruffes and rockcods. Despite the latter name, they are not closely related to the cods in the genus Gadus, nor the rock cod, Lotella rhacina. Not all authorities recognise this family as distinct from Scorpaenidae. FishBase does recognise it, but ITIS does not.
