Comments : China Rockfish, although abundant in these parts, are always a find. They have striking markings. My observations are that China's are solitary rockfish, although they do not seem to defend their territory as aggressively as Tiger Rockfish. With their black bodies and bright yellow "swoosh" along the back, it is easy to distinguish these from other rockfish. ("swoosh" = Nike = made in China = China Rockfish).
