That fish is a Common Dart Trachinotus botla, sometimes called a sweep incorrectly.

actually it's Small Spotted Dart(Trachinotus baillonii).. used to get both in oman (largespotted dart, Trachinotus botla) ..

they are edible... only i would advise do you know the condition of the water from where it came. also a bigger one would have some more meat on it.

Hamour is right, my apologies for the misinformation. Yes they are edible but I have not tasted any :D

Very tasty fish, small prawn over a sandy bottom in the surf is a good way to target dart.,
All the best Scott
