We don’t know why fish have multiple (and usually many) alternate names. We think it’s because of geographical distribution. The burbot, aka the bubbot, Mariah, the lawyer, or the lingcod, is a freshwater fish that requires frigid temperatures to breed. We don’t know about its aliases, but the burbot’s name comes from the Latin word barba meaning whisker or beard. This is in reference to the barbel the fish has. See? And you thought only fisherman could have beards. This non-bearded one piece contains the burbot in all of its bearded glory.
Basically freshwater eel, these cool "bottom feeders" are actually some pretty harsh predators to other fish. These Burbot aren't even afraid to take on fish its own size or even larger! Burbot may be a nuisance fish in a lot of lakes and streams where it is not native but, this fishing Romper shows it off as just a cool looking fish.
