Anglerfishes are worldwide in distribution. With the exception of one antennariid (frogfish) species that has been known to enter freshwater, they are exclusively marine, and most species occur in deep water.

The batfish (Ogcocephalus sp.) "walks" along the bottom on limb-like fins. A "lure" is located below the base of the rostrum. (Photo by David M. Schleser/Nature's Images, Inc/Photo Researchers, Inc. Reproduced by permission.)
