  A commercial fisherman brought me a shore rockling, Gaidropsarus
mediterraneus, and a three bearded rockling, Gaidropsarus vulgaris, last
night for a school class I am teaching.  The Gaidropsarus rocklings, and
possibly others, have a low first dorsal fin that constantly oscillates
rapidly in a wave along its length.  The first dorsal fin is so low that it
is difficult to see so the fin gives the impression that it is a pulsing
'light' travelling down the back of a fish.  Has someone studied this
phenomenon? Does this fin serve a useful function for the fish?  Do other
subfamilies of fishes also display this characteristic?

  The fisherman told me that at certain times of year he noticed that some
three bearded rocklings have a bright orange spot on their body. He wonders
if this is a sexual character and whether the species can be sexed using
this character.

  Yours sincerely,
