cabezon is a big sculpin found in Pacific waters from the Baja Peninsula
in Mexico to Sitka, Alaska. They are bottom-dwelling, sit-and-wait
predators that take advantage of their mottled coloration to hide
from unsuspecting prey. Cabezon are taken only incidentally in commercial
fisheries, but have a delicate flavor and reach sizes up to 25 pounds.
Don't eat the roe, though, because it's poisonous to humans. In
Spanish, cabezon means big-headed or stubborn, which well-describes
both its appearance and temperament.
