My daughter found this skull on a weyouth beach a while ago and has struggled to identify it.
I think it is fish - possibly eel looking at the top of the spine and its relation to the skull
I found several similar looking skull parts when working in the same area last year. If I recall correctly, I was told they were from one of the cod family species, Gadidae, but I don't know how to tell them apart. This site shows one for comparison: http://osteobase.mnhn.fr/region.php?lang=en&idStructure=12&idTaxon=63
Hopefully someone else here can be a bit more precise.
