ABSTRACT
Sculpin, a family of mostly bottom-dwelling fish. Sculpins live mainly in cold seas, although some species live in fresh water. There are about 300 species. Sculpins have large, spiny heads, wide mouths, and large fins. They usually have no scales. Sculpins vary in length from 2 to 30 inches (5�75 cm), depending on the species. One of the largest sculpins is the crab-eating cabe-zon, found along the west coast of North America. Sculpins are sometimes used for food and many species are used by fishermen for bait.
