let's just hope it never enters a relationship with the passive-aggressive pike

ladies and gentlemen, I give you the belligerent sculpin (Megalocottus platycephalus platycephalus). found in the UK and Northern US, this fish is pretty boring except for having an absolutely fantastic common name.

what is it like when drunk?
It swims funny and hits on all the other fish.
According to "The Physiological Effect of Acute and Chronic Exposure to Hydrocarbons of Petroleum on the Near-Shore Fishes of the Bering Sea" (Devries 1976) M. platycephalus is particularly sensitive to several alcohol-derived chemicals.

There may be a connection with the belligerence.

After all, flat-headedness is a common symptom of FAS.
