Many species of rockfish inhabit the waters of the Channel Islands. Treefish (Sebastes serriceps) generally live in rocky crevices and caves of depths up to 46 meters (150 feet). Treefish are extremely territorial and their red-colored lips are probably used to scare off other fish. (photo: Chris Gotschalk)
