Golden Perch, Macquaria ambigua

A Golden Perch at a depth of 4 m, Blowering Dam, near Tumut, New South Wales, 12 November 2011. Note the damage to the mouth, presumably from fishing gear. Sascha reported that other fish displayed similar old wounds and scars, but seemed to be in good health (fat bodies and swimming freely).
