Sure has some greenling characteristics but the head/mouth is wrong among other things. And the story implies it was a sucker of some type, not like a greenling. It looks like a flatfish that is just starting to turn over as it matures. I would be curious to hear overall size.

It's a kelp greenling, but it sure looks like a bullhead catfish too.  :dunno:

The lower half indicates more like a kelp greenling as everybody has pointed out, but the head looks like a mutation!

I agree with KP.

At a glance it looks 'greenlingish', but several features are unlike any greenling I've ever seen. It would have to be severely mutated.

If it's from near the Port of Tacoma or any other super-fund site that could explain a lot.

Looks more like a weird tomcod to me.

It looks like a burbot, not sure why it would be in saltwater though.

Looks like a yellow catfish.  But hard to tell from the photo. 

Are you sharing if it is fresh or salr water?

I don't know. I went through this list https://www.eopugetsound.org/sites/default/files/features/resources/FishesoftheSalishSea_Pietsch_and_Orr.pdf
and tried to look up any thing I thought had a chance. Closest I could come up with was a 'prowfish', but there seem to be significant differences there too.
