What fish is this?

Recommended Posts

I think you'll find it may be a Angler fish which is rarely found in Sth Australian waters... It may be the Warty Angler fish which is known from only two specimens taken a very long time ago in St. Vincent Gulf..

I agree with Meppstas that it certainly look like some sort of Anglerfish - my money is on this one:

That's spot on too archerffish,  it's a Whitespotted Anglerfish.. I think I need to update my old Marine & Freshwater Fishes of Sth Aust. book that I've had since 1974.. it may be a little out dated by know and maybe they have one in colour now..
