Angler fish or alien?

Michael McMaster caught two Angler fish this afternoon off Bar Beach Merimbula. They are a male and female and Michael thinks the female may be gravid as her stomach was very distended and pink.

If you would like to see these fish they have been taken back to the Merimbula Aquarium
