I landed a total of 138 fish float tube fishing a few different inner harbors over this past four day weekend and
inside the LA Harbor I landed this new and unusual species. I can't seem to locate this species in any of my Calif Coastal Fish Species reference books.

So far, many members on the FTFF (Float Tube Fishing Forum) agree that it's a member of the Sea Robin Family (not of this origin).
It probably arrived here in the ballast tank of an incoming freighter.

I'm just hoping that this species is not an invasive species. It appeared to be super healthy and well fed.

Are there any other different positive I.D.'s out there?

I appreciate all your inputs and or discussions
