The sargassum fish, anglerfish, or frog fish, ''Histrio histrio'', is a frogfish of the family Antennariidae, the only species in its genus. It lives among ''Sargassum'' seaweed which floats in subtropical oceans. The scientific name comes from the Latin ''histrio'' meaning a stage-player or actor, and refers to the fish's feeding behaviour.
