What is the nicest sea food to eat?


Recommended Posts

Fresh mackerel barbied within 1/2 hour catching, eaten on a beach, with fresh crusty bread and butter. Hmmmmmmmm failing that fresh prawns or lobster.

One thing; misleading consumer names.

 

FISH -- WHAT'S IN A NAME?

 

(Or, when is a Pacific Dory not a Pacific Dory?)

 

"QUESTION: When is a Pacific Dory not a Pacific Dory?

ANSWER: When it's not from the Pacific and it's not a Dory, that's when.

 

The fish sometimes sold as Pacific Dory does not come from the Pacific Ocean and it is not a member of the Dory fish family. The fish that has sometimes been sold as Pacific Dory is a member of the freshwater catfish family and is farmed in South East Asia.

 

In fact, there is no such fish as Pacific Dory. That is simply a marketing name and one that should no longer be used. Its correct marketing name is "Basa".

 

When is a "Snapper" a "Squire", when is a "Mahi Mahi" a "Dolphin Fish", when is a "Silver Warehou" a "Snotty-Nose Trevally" and when is a "Rabbit Fish" a "Happy Moments"? Well, usually when local fishers or seafood retailers use old local names that leave many seafood shoppers confused -- and maybe even a little anxious.

 

Surveys consistently show that confusion over fish names -- as well as the risk of occasional downright deliberate mis-labelling of cheaper fish as more expensive varieties -- is a source of real concern for consumers.

 

So, why isn't anybody doing anything about it?

 

Well, someone is. A nationwide Fish Names Committee, established by the industry-government organisation Seafood Services Australia, has been "standardising" marketing names for seafood for five years. And it's close to a conclusion.

 

The story of fish names -- and developing standard marketing names for fish and other seafood -- can be interesting and amusing, informative and entertaining.

If you would like to organise an interview with someone involved in the process, please call:

 

Alan Snow (in Brisbane) on 0418 199 516 or

Roy Palmer (in Melbourne) on 0419 528 733

 

Roy Palmer, a former seafood retailer, is Chair of the Fish Names Committee and Alan Snow, a senior staff member of Seafood Services Australia, is Secretary.

 

More information is available from www.fishnames.com.au "

 

There you go, pacific dory, or basa is mekong river catfish, and you can guess what they feed on.......

Yep, absolutely right Bobj - been in Texas too long I guess :rolleyes:

 

Fingermark - we caught and ate some up at Cape York - agree with your view on that too.

 

I didn't mention fish (my list was long enough already) but one that does stand out is Kingklip - anyone who gets to South Africa is recommended to try it.
