What are these fish?

All deepwater species caught by the Killybegs fleet today while fishing for Blue Whiting out west of Donegal on the continental shelf edge. Anyone know what they are? Any help appreciated.

I think the 2 thin fish in the bottom picture are scabbard fish.

1st one is a rays bream alright. Interesting find there, you should send them off to the "Irish Skipper" mag, they always like to have photos of the more unusual catch...

Cheers for the info, all these fish are quite abundant through the blue whiting from the deep so i doubt if they are rare to those who fish the exteme deep out west. There is also a big white fish with red strings or ribbons coming off it but the head decomposes vey quick and is never on it by the time it gets ashore for a decent pic. Here is a better pic of number 3 up there, maye a cornish blackfish or greenland halibut?
