Artist Statement : "Pacific Red Snapper, or yellow-eye rockfish (a Scorpaenidae) is the largest scorpionfish of the Northwest Coast. Scientific name is sebastes ruberrimus. This was a fish sought after by First Nations all the way up the coast - an important food staple that can be preserved and prepared a number of different ways." - Calvin Hunt
