I found this fish on the beach in Sandgate in Kent this morning after last nights storm.
It was dead - so no chance to throw it back.
It was about 14 inches long and about an inch wide at its head.
Is it a Red Band Fish??
I am only asking as from what I have read I didn't think they were found on this bit if the coast but obviously the storm are throwing all sort of things up!
It looks like you're right Michelle, as MarLIN http://www.marlin.ac.uk/speciesinformation.php?speciesID=2920 describes it as unmistakable, & it fits their photo & description, if not their distribution map. A truly remarkable find.
There have been so many weird things thrown up onto the beach - I could spend hours beachcombing!
Thanks for the reply!!
