I’m a pretty successful coastal fish and can generally be found anywhere from just below the low tide mark down to 30 metres deep where there is suitable habitat. I need a cosy hole or crevice to live in and this can be in a rocky reef, under a boulder or in something man-made like a pier or ship-wreck; I’m easily pleased!

I want to show you where fish like me, tompot blennies, have been seen around Britain. This map shows it perfectly, thank you National Biodiversity Network Gateway website and thanks to the people who recorded their sightings of tompot blennies around Britain and Ireland. data.nbn.org.uk

Did you know that if you want to know where you can find a strawberry anemone, a spiny starfish (or even the strange animals and plants that live on land) you can use the NBN Gateway website to find out?
