Irish Conger Eel

Here we see a little European Conger Eel, most like Conger Conger, found by our friends while scuba diving in Ireland. They are reclusive like the moray eel and, according to Wikipedia, have grown to as long as 3 meters, but typically only reach 1.5 m. Any news of aquatic life in the Northern Atlantic is a surprise to me, frankly due to my ignorance: I'm used to only thinking of aquatic life in the tropics.
