Question

Hi there fish raiders, could one of you please help with identifying this fish species please (see below photo after the fish has been cleaned. There is a bit of ice on it as it was in the freezer).

It looks similar in body structure to a Trevally but has a bony like horizontal section towards the tail.

It was caught at an offshore FAD in Sydney.

Hard to say because its been dead for a while but maybe a Cotton Mouth Trevally. (Inside the mouth is white.)

Sounds about right and appearance looks remarkably similar.

Cheers Blackfish.
