Isn't that one of those very endangered, highly protected, on a brink of extinction fish?.. Hmmmm I forgot the name of it... I'll have to get back to you on that one.  :smt003

Do you really not know what kind of fish that is? I know myself if I didn't know what the fish was it wouldn't end up in my sink , no fish is worth getting a ticket to me and no I don't know what kind of fish it is.

 Doesn't look like a Pikeminnow to me it kind of looks more like a mackerel I caught out by the Farallon islands one time.

Should have an ignorance fine.

Saltwater? Freshwater? Did you catch it? Where? Details and better pics would help.
May the fish be mighty and the seas be meek...

We need better pictures.  You did a full-on AUTOPSY of your unidentified fish so it must've been easy to get better pictures.  Where'd you catch it?

First fish that comes to mind is sablefish, but again, more pictures would be helpful.

Worse case it might be poisonous.  :smt005

But it does look like a sable fish even the meat color.

Mission impossible without better picture of some info on where it was caught. The facial markings make me think its a member mackerel family, a sablefish, or a hake.

Not to belabor the point, but the prudent and responsible plan would be to snap a few pictures for identification and then release it next time.
