Aluminum Tilefish SPF Long Sleeve
We went out to the Hudson Canyon looking for tuna and came back with a “pile of tile”! This is what came up from over 800 feet below. The colors in this fish were so cool that I couldn’t resist making this my first color print.
The great northern tilefish (Lopholatilus chamaeleonticeps) or golden tile, is the largest species in the family Malacanthidae (tilefishes), which grows to an average length between 38 to 44 inches (970 to 1,120 mm). The great northern tilefish is a slow-growing and long-lived species, which has four stages of life. After hatching from eggs, the larvae are found in plankton. As they grow into juveniles, the individuals seek shelter until finding or making their own burrows. As adults, the tilefish continue to expand their burrows in the sediment throughout their lives.
