It looks like a harmless fish, I always thought, that deep fish were poisonous like scorfna, tragna, scalm!!

I think you are both talking about the same fish, Emic, Bigboy

Siganus luridus
Family:    Siganidae (Rabbitfishes)
FishBase name:  Dusky spinefoot 
Order:   Perciformes  (perch-likes)

Interesting bit: Western Indian Ocean: Red Sea and East Africa to islands in the western Indian Ocean. Immigrant to Mediterranean via the Suez Canal.

I think I'll start printing these poisonous fish photos and keep aboard for reference. Especially now I'll be trying deep drop.............if the wind gives us a chance.

one can find it in shallow water as from 5mtr to 20mtr maximum. Last year I caught a lot and this year5 I think they came trying to spear on me. I had always waited for them with a 6.5mm spear, and now it was their turn.

(And tonight was my turn cos I made it at catoccio)  Tongue Tongue Tongue

Was it good al cartoccio Emic? I once caught one and i remember the meat was chewey and had an almost bitter taste. Bream and mullet in the same dish were fabolous!! I don't shoot them anymore even if this year I am seeing a lot of them..

yes it is reall nice to eat. Even I had read somewhere that its an expensive fish to buy. Dont think people pay more money for nothing.
