I was wondering if somebody can definitely identify this species. We encountered it while diving in North-East Greenland. Water temperature was about a few degrees C. It was in relatively shallow water (about 6 meters) lying on the bottom.

All suggestions are welcome.

Our diveguide had the feeling it was an arctic sculpin.

This is in norwegian, an 'ulke'.
Can provide real name tomorrow :)
Very common here.

I have the feeling that means it is a sculpin. I tried to google "ulke" and got several fish amongst which some sculpins. But if you can give me the "real name" that would be very much appreciated.
