Chilean Sea Bass -Vs- Toothfish

In honor of St Patty's Day I am having a meal of Green Fish as seen below. I ate a dyn-o-mite corn beef Sandwich for lunch so tonight .................................. Fish it is!!!
I did some research on Chilean Sea Bass, as I remember an article in the Wall Street Journal several years ago Proclaiming the "Toothfish to Chilean Sea Bass" brand transformation a major success. Since the name change there is even a fear of over fishing the poor critter.

I have added my own comments to the official publication below in Green.
Why is this fish called Chilean sea bass? (Because no one would eat an ugly fish like this with a name like Fillet of Toothfish with a side of Garlic Mashed) Chilean sea bass is a deep-water species also known as tooth fish, caught in southern ocean waters near and around Antarctica. The Chileans were the first (brave enough to eat this ugly mugged creature) to market toothfish commercially in the United States, earning it the name Chilean sea bass, although it is really not a bass (mutant monster) and it is not always caught in Chilean waters (sometimes it lurks in the bushes and under crawl spaces). It is a different species type than the sea bass caught in U.S. waters. Because of its white meat appeal, Chilean sea bass usually fetches premium prices in specialty markets and high-end restaurants. It is a deep-water fish that can live up to 50 years and grow to weigh over 200 pounds.
Bon Apetite!!! How can such an UGLY fish end up as a PRETTY dish?

Wow! That's all I ever wanted to know and more about Chilean sea bass. It's not so delicate anymore. Check out the google adsense for ads. It's one of your Blogger options. Nice blog, BTW

Looks like that fish we ate at La Lanterna in Italy at the Cinque Terre town of Riomaggio.

Good post. Kinda like how "Mahi Mahi" is Hawaiian for Dolphin. And how no one ever serves up calamari by its real name, "squid".
