Q is for Quillback

A child's rendition of a Quillback Rockfish
"The Quillback Rockfish generally lives next to reefs among rocks or sometimes coarse sand and pebbles. These are usually areas with lots of flat-bladed kelp. These fish are usually found on or near the bottom, but will occasionally rise through the kelp forests Found from Alaska to California, but commonly occur from southeastern Alaska to northern California."
