We're luckily enough to know a Marine Biologist and he's identified it as an Atlantic Pomfret which I assume is the same as a Ray's Bream. Common in the Atlantic, South Pacific and Indian oceans up to depths of 1,000 feet. Quite unusual to be so close to shore, and still be alive.

Not sure, last I heard he'd gutted it and stuck it in the fridge.
