Armored searobin

provided by wikipedia EN

The armored searobins, or armored gurnards are a family, Peristediidae, of scorpaeniform fishes[1] found in deep waters around the world, with most species in tropical regions. They are related to the searobins in the family Triglidae, and some authorities classify them in that family,[2][3] but they are encased in heavy scales with prominent spines. They have prominent and often elaborate barbels on their chins.
