What so unusual is about the lumpsucker is the suction cup situated under the bellies of the adult animals. The lumpsucker uses this to fasten itself to the seabed. The fish is fairly common along the Dutch coast. Lumpsuckers grow up to a half meter long and a weight of 5 kilograms. They eat zooplankton and snails which live between stones and seaweed.
