Chief scientist Randall Kosaki held a female, top, and male Hawaiian pigfish aboard the NOAA vessel Hi‘ialakai on Wednesday. The fish are normally found at 600 to 700 feet of water but were found at 330 feet due to the cooler northern temperatures of the Kure Atoll. It was the first time that a male specimen had been seen or collected by divers.
