Hi David, I'd go with

Hi David,

I'd go with pollachius pollachius on this one based on the significantly longer lower jaw. That and the colouration.

Hi David, You were spot on

You were spot on with the common name. Its a very distinctive mouth on a pollack, quite different from that of a coley(P. virens).
