Looks like a Sand tilefish to me. Surprisingly good eating. A lot of people throw them back.

So you kept a fish not knowing what it is and whether or not there are any restrictions on keeping it, not to mention whether or not it is edible?

Yup a gut hooked fish that had part of its stomach hanging out its gill plate from hook pulled out..... We were thinking about doing an emergency surgery to save the small fish...We thought about mouth to mouth ..Had a group meeting on the best path foward..but concluded the poor little guy Definitely would have died due to massive internal injuries ... We thought was some type of tile fish but wasnt sure..Yes we kept it and what do you know we were right doing it..
We were traumatized by the death of that little guy so we will keep a marine biologist and Marine vet on staff ready to perform life saving procedures in the future..Ill add we keep fish identity book and charts to do our best.. What do you know with all that info including FISH RULES APP we couldn't make a positive ID.. But thanks for the great advise
PS ZOOM IN ON PICTURE I POSTED AND LOOK CARFULLY AT GILL PLATE THATS WHERE I pushed part of stomach back in with very sharp fillet knife seen on table..We did release fish after it was wacked up for the table..

Sand tiles are excellent eating. They do have bones that run center down fillet, but all good end up w two xtra long fish sticks
