Definitely not a mowie Finin.  :lol:

I can see the lateral line that runs from the top of the gill covering to the middle of the tail. Looks like a pearlie.

Pearl Perch for me to.

The "Supracleithrum" bone on top of the Gill plate makes me think it is and the high rear dorsal fin.

Plus what Yowie said.

Hi Blackfish, you must know what you're talking about. What is this? "Supracleithrum" bone on top of the Gill plate. bn

Hi BN. 

Rather than call it "The White/Grey thing on top of the Gill plate" I looked up the correct term. 

Mind you I couldn't spell it if it wasn't in front of me.

All the best mate and I hope your scaring some Cod.

You're certainly game to keep a fish you have no idea what it is, looks like a ghost pearch to me " highly protected, critically endangered " rumoured to only be one left in the ocean 😂
