The fish-eating anemone is found in cold coastal waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean from Alaska to Southern California. It typically attaches to rocks from the low intertidal zone to depths of about 160 feet. This is a large anemone that can grow to be 8 inches tall and 10 inches in diameter. It has sturdy tentacles with which it captures shrimp and small fish.
The body (or stalk) of the fish-eating anemone is red without any spots. Its white tentacles are short and slender and may have red or pink tips. The tentacles are lined with minute stinging cells used to capture prey.
You will be able to actually touch a fish-eating anemone in the Cold Water Quest gallery.
