Mallotus villosus Capelin Fish Newfoundland

An event which only occurs in Newfoundland is the spawning of Capelin fish, aka Mallotus villosus, along beaches such as at Admiral's Point in Trinity Bay.

Capelin, also known as Mallotus villosus, are a small fish which play a vital role in providing the link between plankton and larger animals. They spend the majority of their lives offshore and only move in to the Newfoundland shores for spawning.
