Monkfish – The ugliest fish in the World?

The ugliest fish in the World?

I spotted this rather scary looking Monkfish at a local fishmarket in Portimao, Portugal.

Could it be the ugliest fish in the World?

    I wonder if it gets the monk to it’s name from the fact that it’s so butt ugly it never gets laid either?

    It may be ugly, but it’s one of the best tasting fish I’ve ever had. I’m serious.

    You know, previously, I thought the blobfish was the ugliest fish in the world, but this is a real contender.
