Deformed Fishies

Hi Guys,

Noticed this section (my fave!) hasn't been too active of late, so thought I'd throw something in from our archive...

....a few years back while diving the Exmouth Navy Pier, I spotted this deformed looking trevally on consecutive dives. I eventually got a shot of him and emailed to a couple of marine biologist friends who couldn't provide me with much insight into the reason his spine is out of shape (ie what disease it has and whether similar to a human spinal abnormality)....I thought some of you smart cookies might be able to shed some light?

It would also be interesting to see any other shots/ vision of fishies with disabilities- this little guy was determined to keep up with all the other able-bodied trevally, what a little trooper huh?! :)
