Just consulted my 1973 AA Book of the British Countryside (a classic). Black bream is the only fish depicted in Inshore Fish section which even vaguely resembles this little beauty. The strange upward-pointing angle of the side fin is just like in my book.Doesn't the fish in the second photo look remarkably cross? Can't say I blame it.
The Ray's Bream seems to have quite a bit of form for this sort of behaviour. www.worldseafishing.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52644
I found one of these on the beach a couple of months ago (still alive I might add) and managed to throw it back in. Those spines aren't half rough on the hands.
