Wolffish – (Catfish)
The Wolffish is mainly the product of by-catch from demersal and longline fisheries targeting species such as Hake, Megrim and Monkfish. Therefore, it is mainly caught using deep-water trawls.
Also known as Wolf Fish, Catfish are found all around the North Atlantic, and have a torpedo shaped body which is usually only available already filleted – probably a good thing, as the whole fish is not particularly attractive, and the skin is tough.
A good buy, the flesh is firm and can be cooked like any Cod-like species.
