What fish is this? I found them in England, near Portsmouth, south of Hayling island on the breathtakingly stunning sand flats out to sea :)

Apparently they could be Sand Eels or Sand Smelt.

    Could also be sand smelt or any number of small species, or a juvenile of a bigger species possibly. Very hard to tell without an actual specimen out of the water.
