This is, as you say, essentially a record shot, and it certainly shows what it is intended to show. That said, a record shot needs to be as near perfect technically as possible. Even though the main interest is adequately sharp, a bit more DOF would have been appropriate, and I think I would have gone for f/11 rather than f/8. Maybe some exposure compensation (-2/3 of a stop or thereabouts) would have avoided burning out the fish's tongue and the inside of its mouth, where it appears that some detail has been lost. There is no need to apologise for the angler's dirty fingers - that aspect is part of the truth, and truth is what record photography is all about.
I am fascinated by rock faces. The first image I ever had accepted for an exhibition was a rock face. That was in 1962, and ever since then I have found the possibilities offered by such subjects most intriguing. So it was startling to realise that none of my rock face abstracts are on epz. I must do something about that soon.
