Rare and/or unusual fish in Irish waters

I would like to hear from anglers who have caught any rare and/or unusual fish species in Irish waters. I am a marine biologist who is particularly interested in rare fish. I have published >100 scientific papers on the subject over the last 20 years. Many of the species that I have recorded are in the Natural History Museum in Dublin. If you catch any rare and/or unusual fish, I would be grateful if you would contact me with details such as where and when it was caught. If possible, please retain the fish for examination.... it could be a new species or a species new to Ireland !

Many Thanks,

Declan Quigley
