Pink bream

Pink bream

How's this munted pinkie I caught this morning. The head and tail on it look like they'd belong to a fish around 70cms but this bloke is horizontally challenged and only went 55cms. Marko caught one exactly the same about a month ago, anyone have a reason why they are like this?

Initially I thought that was your lens angle distortion...

Could be just due to normal gene mutation - part of natural selection. If this geno type can survive in the environment- without being disadvantaged and hence eliminated, it will live and past the gene down the next generation and so on. Then this shape of snapper becomes common.

I could be wrong.

it's like girls in highschool, there is always a few that just go BAM and grow a special rack at 14, maybe just an early bloomer?

Uluabuster may have something, if the genetic change keeps them below the minimum length, they will be the breeders .Just kidding.
