Any ideas folks?

A work colleague took this fishy pic on the beach at Nairn on 17 Jan 2013.  Anyone put an ID to it?  He said it also had a small row of teeth.

Hopefully the heavy snow forecast will not get this far North, but getting my emergency kit sorted out just in case!


Many thanks for the replies chaps, def not one that I have ever seen!


  1. Looks a bit like a piranha but in fact is a sea bream

  2. Looks like a Pompano (Jack) of the Trachinotus genus. A warm water genus, far from home at Nairn.

  3. Its a Ray's Bream one I woould love to find. Google it! Turns up in winter storms a few were caught alive during the harsh winters in 2010.
