Fish ID please. (Eastern Wirrah Cod)

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi Raiders,

Found this guy struggling in a rockpool at Moonee Beach and was licking my lips but thought it might be an endangered species so I released him.

Can anyone id this?

Thanks,

undy

Good on you Undy for releasing the fish, if you not sure thats the best thing to do.

It may be Poisonous, Endangered or Protected.

As Scrachie said, its an Eastern Wirrah Cod or sometimes call an Old Boot because of its alleged eating qualities.
