Notothenia neglecta by the looks of it. As a marine biologist I used to asked a lot what were the fish called that worked on while on Signy. I would tell them it was this one and give the Latin name and try to explain that they were only found in Antarctica and had no real common name that would mean anything to them.
This just often seemed to annoy people who pushed me for a name when I would say "Antarctic Cod". I could never work out why they were then happy with this name other than with its relative familiarity while in reality it told them nothing.
