WTF is this?

WTF is this?

PeteB picked this one up last week. Very unusual looking fish. I have no idea what it is, obviously released, but would look great in an aquarium.

Not sure what they are called Andy but we have caught heaps in around structure in the sound. All probably 1/3 to 1/2 that size.

Yep, I'll put my hand up for this one.

It's a ROUGHY, reasonably common on coastal reefs, inhabits caves, single high dorsal fin, rough scales, reddish brown colour, found mostly south of Kalbarri.  Grows upto 17cms, don't think they are edible.

Rough Bullseye

Sat, 2011-05-28 12:27

Rough Bullseye - one of the most abundant fish on south and south-west reefs.  google Pemperis klunzingeri. Never caught one on a hook, but as a few have said - you see them in spades when diving.  There are few species of Bullseye in the southwest.  Note that it is different to a 'roughy'.
