Lightbulb Different Fish Names

Here's a really informative website where you can go to enter the name of a fish, and you will learn ALL the other names it goes by!

This could be VERY useful! http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~frf/seaintro.html

Thanks June. I try to go to the International Farmer's Mkt several times a month and the names of the fish are confusing to me...and the cuts of meat, also.

What a useful tool that will...now, if they just posted recipes for each.
At the Asian market, I wrote down quite a few names of fish I had no idea how to prepare. Now, I have recipes for most of them and I can pick up some next visit.

Cuttlefish
yellow croaker

and a couple others.

I couldn't find any of our fish in there June, here's a link I sometimes use that covers other parts of the world.

And here's one that covers some of our fish.
