The only thing that's got me

The only thing that's got me second guessing is the blackspot on the upper gill plate, Bluddy Trevs all look alike.

Bluefin

Mon, 2008-09-15 09:47

I'd go a bluefin trev, but, like Daisy, the black spot on the gill plate is a little unusual.  Mind you, it doesn't look like any of the blue fin I've seen outa the coral lagoons, but variation between fish isnt uncommon.

Strangley enough it could be

Strangley enough it could be a blacked cheeked trevally.

Black spot on the cheek, elongated head, lateral line where the front curved section is longer than the rear flat section, and only weak scutes along the line to the tail.

However no mention of all those spots and the lower jaw on the black cheek protrudes past the upper. Cant tell from that pic.

Thats my guess after consulting my Grants anyway

There is another one in Grants called the blue spotted trev. That has the cheek spot, the same colours as yours and is heavily spotted like yours BUT the lateral line is smaller at the front than the back and has heavy scutes.

Your fish is a bit in between
