Photos from: Invasive Asian Fish Found in Oregon Waters

A striped knifejaw, also known as a barred knifejaw or striped beakfish, is native to Japan, China and Korea. Crabbers near Port Orford, Oregon recently hauled in a live one and turned it over to researchers for evaluation. A variety of potentially invasive species of plants and animals have arrived in Washington and Oregon waters and on Pacific Northwest shores at intervals aboard debris swept into the ocean by the 2011 tsunami that washed over part of Japan.
