This listing is for a print of a tautog or blackfish (Tautoga onitis, Tautoga de fajas in Spanish)
Is a fish of the wrasse family found in salt water from Nova Scotia to Georgia. It lives along the bottom, in and amongst rocks, wrecks, mussel beds, bridge pilings or other bottom features.

The image (found on a 19th. century book on Natural History) was black and white and I painted in it in blue (not the real color of this fish) to give the antique print a more contemporary look.

Tautog are brown and dark olive, with white blotches, and have plump elongated bodies.
They have thick rubbery lips and powerful jaws. The backs of their throats contain a set of teeth resembling molars. Together these are used to pick and crush prey such as mollusks and crustaceans. Their skin also has a rubbery quality with a heavy slime covering, which helps to protect them when swimming among rocks.

Size: 15" by 10.5" including a margin of 0.5"

Printed on 200 gsm fine art paper by a professional print service. Paper has ISO 9706
ageing resistance certification that guarantees an archival life of more than 200 years
and Forest Stewardship Council™ certificate that guarantees well-managed forests.
