    • n zoarces The name-giving genus of Zoarcidæ, including such species as Z. viviparus, the so-called viviparous blenny (formerly Blennius viviparus). This is a large eelpout, with an elongate compressed body, tapering behind, heavy oblong head, a large mouth, strong conic teeth in several series, a long low dorsal fin some of the hinder rays of which are developed as sharp spines, broad pectoral fins, and jugular ventrals of three or four soft rays; the scales are small, not imbricated, but embedded in the skin. Another species, with an increased number of fin-rays and vertebræ, is Z. (Macrozoarces) anguillaris, known as mutton-fish and mother of eels, found from Labrador to the Middle States, 20 inches long, of a reddish-brown color mottled with olive, with a dark streak across the cheek.
