V, I love cod and wish we got more of it here

We do get a couple of varieties, but not the one Steve had back in the UK

When I was growing up we used to pull Corvina out of the sea, sometimes 5 of us in the boat could pull in as many as 30 in 30 minutes. (no limits). Good day when fish were biting of course. Great tasting salt water white meat fish. My 7 year old brother caught a 35 Lb. Corvina and made the local paper. We would have huge fish frys on the beach. I never see Corvina in markets anywhere.

CF, since you are in Acton, my guess also would be that it was Rock Cod (Red Snapper) and a wonderful choice for fish and chips. I actually prefer it to Halibut for this dish, although I adore grilled Halibut. We have a wonderful harbor restaurant here in Ventura called "Andrea's" and they have the best fish and chips made with Rock Cod I've ever eaten anywhere, including the United Kingdom.
