Wolf Eel

The Wolf Eel (Anarrhichthys ocellatus) is another hallmark Pacific Northwest site while diving, and my friends there made sure to get me to some dive sites that had them. I only once saw one out swimming which is not super common, but even seeing them in their caves with their distinctive faces poking out was a bucket list item for sure! These fish are pretty large, growing to almost 8 feet long and weighing in at about 40 lbs.
