Fish ID - Longfin Perch

 I got this fish off Jurien Bay in 90 metres. About 35cm long. Quick look at the FishWrecked ID says Longfin Perch and good eating so in the esky. However, when I google this now, every picture of a Longfin Perch doesn’t look like this...for a start the tail is different. Anyone clear this up? Perhaps Glen?

Looks similar to a Brown Stripe Snapper (without the stripe)

Notice the purple edge to the dorsal fin.

Thanks Bucks, I reckon you have nailed it. Sunrise Perch it is. I think the one on the FishWrecked fish ID is also a Sunrise Perch.

Cheers
