    Striped Scat or Old Maid. Those spines on the top are pretty dam sharp and nothing to play with. Aborigines used to make spear tips out of them. Not edible and rarely caught on rod and reel as they usually graze on algae.

    Looks like a Black Trevally, sometimes called Happy Moments because of their spines
