As mentioned in my previous post, Charlie went deep sea fishing yesterday for the first time. He called yesterday evening, happy but exhausted, to report he had caught a 20 lb “fish”. I, of course,immediately asked: What kind of fish?
Charlie happily replied: “I have no idea – the people on the boat think it’s a grouper”
(I’m thinking they do this for a living so they ought to know, but Charlie seems to have his doubts). Shortly thereafter the picture arrived…
I am not very knowledgeable about fish; to me the thing looks a bit like a tuna. I figured once we cut it up we might know more (if it’s a tuna the meat will be pink). I also googled groupers and the pictures I see online look nothing like the fish on the photo!
So, anyone recognize this fish ?
