VANUATU – Unidentified fish… Identified!

This unidentified fish was caught by a local fisherman off the SW coast of Efate, Vanuatu in approx 100 meters of water. The surface is rigid without scales with small, spiny protrusions with no obvious dorsal fin. An extensive fish search has come up empty. If you know the species, please leave a comment below.
 

*Update: An expert from www.fishbase.tw has identified this fish as a Gurnard or “Satyrichthys Welchi – Robust Armored-Gurnard”. This deep water family of fish live in 300ft of water on the ocean’s outer shelf. LIINK
