reminds me of those guppies and other aquarium fish purpose bred for long fins. Im guessing a recessive gene just like albinism which pops its head up now and then when two fish who are carriers of the gene do the horizontal tango!

 

PS: It would have been worth a tidy sum if you kept it alive for an aquarium, or even a public aquarium would love one!)

Wow can't wait to show my daughter this one, would be great if you you kept it whole as I'm sure there are a few who would be very interested if it is genetic disorder.

Do you mind if I use the picture to ask around a few specialists?

Longfin or Bowen Snapper maybe? their official distribution is the Qld border but like most things I guess they can come out of range

Great  looking fish, doesn’t look like a longfin snapper, looks like it has a deformity on the tail at the start of the upper fork  , be interesting to see what blackfish and John D come up with

I wonder if this picture is Photoshopped, anyone on here experienced with it.

I'm led to believe another report said it came from New Zealand.

Agreed. I checked it. It's suspect...

I went through the entire Grant’s Guide To Fishes and couldn’t find anything close to it.

I am closing this thread temporarily. 

@JonD please come back to me with the answers from your specialists. I will be most interested. 

If this is a photoshopped or altered pic I will not be amused. 

Msg me anyone who has any ID
