i'm o-fish-aly stumped.

So i pulled this thing up from one of the close reefs the other day, my first thought was a leather jacket that had gotten into mums makeup draw and gone a little nuts but the shape doesn't seem quite right for the leather. Can any one shed some light on this fancy fish?

Good on fisheries for the catching the grub.
But i hope they use that expensive looking laser tape measure for more than measuring nets.
