Someone sent me this the other day. Wondering if anyone has any info? I mean it makes them easier to clean but don't know about eating them(just kidding)

I only have experience with the ornamental fish, I can see some of the sores on the fins which resemble a viral infection such as lymphocystis, but the large sore on it's side closer resembles a bacterial infection... surprised it was still eating though.

I think it's some kind of bacterial infection. I've caught a couple like that in cocodrie a few years ago.

I catch 2-4 fish like this a year. It’s always on black drum or redfish that I have seen. We call them sick fish or zombie fish and most have parasites on them away that are trying to feed on the sick fish.

It happens to trout too, but they are not as hearty so it usually kills them, according to my uncle the marine biologist

I’d love to know what LSU says about it.
