Yesterday my kids caught these two fish. I tried to figure out what kind of fish (species and name, to tell my kids a bit more about them) they are but I was not successful. Today we made a trip to a nearby sea-life exhibition which exhibits native sea animals but I couldn't find similar fishes there :-)
They were caught in Callantsoog (north-western Netherlands) in salt water in shallow water next to a breakwater wall at low tide.
This is the first fish. To me it looks like some kind of catfish.
It is approx. 10 cm long.
This is the second fish. To me it looks like some kind of eel.
It is approx. 20 / 25cm long.
