Leopard Spotted Goby

Leopard Goby on a dive at “The Grotto” Small Sovereign

This is a very easy fish to identify the overall body is mauve with dark blotches all over the body and head. They are a shy little fish and will dart into its hiding place at the first sigh of an intruder.  This goby is usually found in rocky ground where there are lots of crevices where it can hide, closest to shore at depths from between 6 to 40M. The Leopard spotted goby is very common and is found on all coasts of Ireland
