Description

Found washed up on the beach, still gasping irregular.... tried to revive it by putting back in the water but died soon after.
Approx 70 -80cm long. When I picked it up the silver rubbed off onto my fingers. couldn't see any fishing line or reasons why washed up.
Was found on Billies Beach Mystery bay, when I tried to get it back in the water the scales? or silver came off on my fingers which was interesting.
