Head of a Crested Bandfish

The head of a Crested Bandfish purchased from Nicholas Seafood by B. Yau, September 2005 (AMS I.43718-001). The fish was caught by M. Cameron on FV Tasman Explorer at a depth of 1000 m, off Coffs Harbour, New South Wales. The two wounds were probably caused by a Cookiecutter Shark.
