Anyone know what this is?

Postby Lightningx » Sun Jan 17, 2016 9:19 pm

While fishing at mount Martha yesterday for whiting with a mate I caught a very strange looking fish and have never see it in all my years of fishing!
Anyone have any idea what it is or what it's called?
Cheers.

A complete guess...
Never seen a coloration like that...but it's shape looks maybe like some sort of Goby?

That's what I thought too but have you ever seen a goby this colour? It was quite large too for a goby and light green? :o_0:

You could send the pic to the museum or zoo and ask if they have any ideas.
