What is the Latin name of this fish? It was caught by a Japanese offshore longliner in temperate pacific waters two days ago and measures around 60cm. The Japanese name is kintai. Thank you!
Beautiful fish. This is the Opah, Lampris guttatus. Supposed to be one of the most delicious fish you can eat, though I have never had the chance to try it myself.
The fisheries rep who showed it to me looked very excited - I guess this explains why! Thank you!
