Do we recommend the toothfish?

By bigfish 21 August 2008 28

I noticed Peppered Prawn Restaurant in Woden displaying a big banner with special of month, Patagonian Toothfish?

Does anyone know what this is and what does it taste like?

What’s Your opinion?

patagonian toothfish should be on the ‘avoid’ list both because of sustainability and because, at the top of its food chain, is likely to have a higher concentration of heavy metals so is not necessarily the healthiest option (although it sadly is a tasty option)

cod. good oily rich in omega 3’s. and deeeeeeee-licious, esp black baked in tomato cream sauce.

“Personally I think the federal government should start handing out incentive grants to start fish farms.”

Patogonian taste like shit, according to a Navy mate of mine.

Orange Roughy is interesting because we know absolutely nothing about it breeding habits, life cycle, maturity etc, and yet we still drag them out of the sea in millions. Thus we should not be commercially harvesting them until we do understand these things.

Personally I think the federal government should start handing out incentive grants to start fish farms.

Thumper, I seem to recall reading somewhere that researchers in “Nud Zilund” have found that Orange Roughy take up to 50 years to “suxually” mature?

Overpriced? Pretentious?

Why didn’t somebody say so!

I shall have to sample it now … extinct or not.

It’s like the giant cod from the Goodies!

Man, I wish they’d put reruns of that back on free-to-air.

They could run that episode followed by the late B&W film spot: ‘Goodbye Mr Chips’.

Drive safely. Tip your waitresses. Thank you and good day.

Diplomat Cake! I saw these at the Kingston Vietnamese bakery. fearsome things, they are loaf-shaped, and wrapped tightly in gladwrap to hold their shape, and seem to be a gooey conglomeration of custardy stuff and fruit and nuts.

If this toothfish eats other fish, then it’s not halal.
