Skull identification - large fish?

Posting on behalf of my parents (who don't have internet access at the moment) so i am working on slightly limited information-


They found this skull - presuming it is a skull! Washed up on a beach in Portugal after some rough weather.


My mum describes it as having 'a 2inch diameter vertebrae sticking out the end & cartilage fins on top. About the size of the end of a shovel"


The "fins" sticking out of the top is what lead us to think fish? See image with lighter for scale.


Hoping to get an image of the underneath later and i will upload it when i can.


Any help identifing it would be greatly appreciated!
