I think the species could be Canthidermis maculata rather than
Canthidermis sufflamen.  I base this opinion on body shape and body
depth.  The unidentified fish is not as deep bodied as the C. sufflamen
specimens that I have seen.

I have caught C. maculata and their white spots can fade in the sun on
the deck of a fishing boat.

Best Wishes,
Yours sincerely,
Richard

With one minor problem, it appears to be a Canthidermis maculata
(spotted oceanic triggerfish), a balistid.  The problem is the missing
trigger.  Do you think it might ahve been damaged?
