Syngnathus schmidti, the Black Sea pelagic pipefish or Schmidt's pipefish, is a pipefish species that inhabits the Black Sea and Sea of Azov. A freshwater/brackishwater fish, it can grow up to 11 centimetres (4.3 in) long and usually lives at a depth of 1 to 10 metres (3.3 to 32.8 ft), although it can live as deep as 100 metres (330 ft).[2] The specific name honours the Danish zoologist Ernst Johannes Schmidt (1877-1933).[3]
