Snapper after being in my pressure chamber.......:letsdrink
Someone has some talent with Photoshop most likely.... but it's possible that someone caught a fish with either massive tumors or seriously abnormal bone growth... either way it makes for some good stories!
Checked out the website posted- matched the scientific name with my database.....
Here's "Pagrus auratus"...... but the most current, and accepted, scientific name is Chrysophrys auratus...... wouldn't it be nice if the names stayed consistent???? It's not a snapper- the AFS accepted common name is "Squirefish"- it's a member of the porgy family... the teeth in the second picture posted earlier give it away. That second picture made me question my own earlier post about photoshopping..... I'd never seen one at that stage before! Just goes to show Nature has a sense of humor......

2020 has been, is, one of the best most consistent years ever.
