Opaleye usually have greenish bodies with one or two white spots near the top middle of their backs. A close look reveals their striking blue eyes. They are sea chubs and so are related to halfmoons. Their large upper lips and overbite makes them look slightly like Liberace. They are fairly common at the Channel Islands, but less common off the mainland coast. They often travel in schools. They like to eat young kelp, and the small creatures that live on kelp fronds. This one was at Garden Spot off Anacapa.
