Scorpaenidae, the scorpionfish, are a family of mostly marine fish that includes many of the world’s mostvenomous species. As the name suggests, scorpionfish have a type of “sting” in the form of sharp spines coated with venomous mucus. The family is a large one, with hundreds of members.[2] They are widespread in tropical and temperate seas, but mostly found in the Indo-Pacific. They should not be confused with thecabezones, of the genus Scorpaenichthys, which belong to a separate, though related, family, Cottidae. source
