 I dont know how big it is.  I didnt catch it and wasnt on the boat.  Im just posting it here hoping for an expert opinion.  Dont particularly want any comments about it being too small or shouldnt have been killed etc etc.

Pelagic Armourhead

I agree with Carry,

this is a Pelagic Armourhead Pseudopentaceros richardsoni.  It is actually a member of the boarfish family.  They are found in 350-600m of water thoughout the temperate regions of the whole southern hemisphere!  I expect it was quite tasty.

 

Cheers,

Glenn
