Market limited due to the green-colored flesh (Ref. 5217). In females, only left gonad is developed, and in males the right gonad is small or absent (Ref. 26938).

Edit,,,, just re read the article and it stated the bills are commonly broken,,,,,
If it was broken off it must have been an older wound because it was rounded off and clean looking. I would say definitely a flat needlefish. Are they commonly caught while trolling?

It looks like a whole bunch of fish got together and had an orgy!
