Unidentifiable fish species

Unidentifiable fish species

On the evening of May 30th a fish was caught by local fishermen at a depth of approximately 100 meters. At present no one has any idea what species this fish might be. A picture is shown below and all who know what species this fish is are invited to send an email to m.vermeij@carmabi.org with the supposed species name so the information can be shared with the local fishing community.

Thanks in advance.

Update June 3rd 2010: After sending the picture to the Coral-List server (an international internet based information network for coral reef research), it seems that most people seem to agree that this fish is Verilus sordidus.
