Wikipedia Abstract

The spotted wolffish (Anarhichas minor) is a large marine fish of the Anarhichadidae family. Other common names include leopardfish and spotted catfish. It is classified as a threatened species, at risk of extinction. The bottom-dwelling spotted wolffish is found across the North Atlantic from north of Russia to the Scotian Shelf, off Nova Scotia. The population declined by about 90% from the late 1970s through the early 1990s, particularly in the northern part of its range.
