    The monkfish is a unique fish. It is also known as anglerfish, fishing frog, lawyerfish, bellyfish, and goosefish. The monk fish has apeculiar head that is covered with spiny protruberances and a pair of antennae that have lures of fake algae to lure fish to it for consumption. Monkfish lie on the ocean floor and wait for smaller fish to approach its special lure before it attacks. They grow to lengths of 6 feet and weigh 50 lbs . :0a30:
