Comments : A decent shot of a Copper Rockfish at KVI on a good vis day (30 feet). The Latin name means "magnificent" and "northwest", which is very appropriate as this is a very common rockfish in Northwest waters and can be found almost anywhere there is ample rock structure. Copper Rockfish are a welcome companion on any dive.
