Wikipedia Abstract

Lophiomus setigerus, the Blackmouth angler, is a species of goosefish found in the Indian and western Pacific Oceans where it occurs at depths of from 30 to 800 metres (98 to 2,625 ft). This species grows to a length of 40 centimetres (16 in) TL. As a side note, L. setigerus is traditionally combined in agwi with the ascidian tunicate Styela clava (mideodeok, 미더덕). Like this fish, use of tunicates as food is rather unusual.
