Gulf bareye tilefish

Caulolatilus intermedius, the Gulf bareye tilefish, is a species of tilefish native to the Gulf of Mexico. It inhabits muddy bottoms at depths of from 45 to 290 metres (148 to 951 ft). This species can reach a length of 60 centimetres (24 in) TL though most are only around 20 centimetres (7.9 in). It is of minor importance to local commercial fisheries.[1]
