A Common Redmouth Whalefish, Rondeletia loricata, (AMS I.42718-001) caught during the NORFANZ expedition in a midwater trawl between the surface and 2000 m, north-west of Norfolk Island, Tasman Sea, May 2003. The pink areas on the nape and cheek are missing the overlying skin. This damage was caused by the trawl net.
