This is a pretty rare find! It’s listed under COSEWIC: http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/species-especes/species-especes/spottedwolf-louptachete-eng.htm

I saw that website. That's how I identified the fish. A friend of mine sent me the picture and he didn't know who it was that caught it. Some local had it with his cod catch. He thought it was something else.
