What a shame that these researchers don't respect fish privacy in Idaho.

That headline is more sweet than bitter.

Aren't there lakes in far northern Canada (north of the Arctic) that no one has ever fished? If so, they probably have some weird ass fish in them

OK, but how does it taste after being dredged through cornmeal and deep fried?

Your geography may be suspect.

They are very bony, I wouldn't recommend eating them. However, I've only caught freshwater sculpin, saltwater sculpin may be different.They make great bait for other fish though.

I hope that's the joke.

These fish really aren't weird as they are just a subspecies of sculpin that are very common in pretty much all rivers around here.  Someone just looked at this one and couldn't match it to one of the 8 or 10 species that are typically found here.

/we used to use sculpins as bait when there was a season on Bull Trout.

Wonder if the guy from Idaho University saw it coming in the air?

Could be worse, they could've found the North american version of the Brazilian penis snake.

we called them Bull Heads.   they were annoying as they would bite the same lure over and over again.  I recall tying strings onto them as markers to see how many times we could catch the same one.

Bittersweet.

(This would have been much funnier if Sybarite hadn't spoiled it.)
