Waigeu Sea Perch

Waigeu Sea Perch (Psammoperca waigiensis)
Cyrene Reef, 26th June 2010

A long driftnet had been laid across a section of Cyrene Reef, trapping many fishes. While many were still alive and were promptly untangled and released, this was one of the fish I found that did not survive entanglement.
