To divide the amount? RB said it was frozen, so his friend may have opened the package he bought, divided the fish into two new FoodSaver type bags and put them back in the freezer.

It's just a guess. That type of smoked fish, sold in different places, was the only result from my Google search.

Or maybe the friend got it from someone who made something like that product and just used the name, in which case there's no way to determine what it is without contacting whoever made it.

Fish spread for crackers

I guess we should go back to the question what are "goldies"?
There are some smoke houses, especially on the way to Duluth. Where they smoke all kind of fish that is cut in the lakes. So it could be the same fish as you posted but smoked in a small place rather than place like Morries

Yup. It's been a long time since I've had freshwater fish regularly, so I'm not as familiar with it. I grew up in Michigan but have lived in Virginia since 1985, so we have seafood more often.

Smoked Fish - Morey's
Thanks for the geography lesson.
What I have looks exactly like what is pictured here from your link. http://www.moreys.com/product/smoked-whiting-goldies/ According to your link, this is a salt water fish which makes no sense at the moment.
Appreciate your help GG.

Thats kinda why I asked. We get some smoked fish here. Mainly trout that is smoked and vacuumed packed by the manufacturer. Needs no refrigeration that I am aware of. I could be wrong on that.
I was a bit surprised to see the self vacuumed and labeled bag. But they do look exactly like this. Smoked Whiting (Goldies) - Morey's
Exactly.

The picture from your link looks identical and I would put money its the exact same product. Even the size is perfect and the color of the flesh showing at the big end is the same. Its dark.

According to GG's link, this is white fish and a salt water fish. I would never have thought that.
I guess its time to try it out.
I want to make a dip or spread with it. I have not paid any attention to the thread, so I will look back and see how to make something with it.
If its very good, I may just serve it as is. With cold beer and some hot sauce on the side?

You can mix it with cream cheese or mayo. You can add chives, dill, parsley. What do you like?

Interesting. I guess we both assumed it was a freshwater fish since it's from an inland state, but apparently they import and smoke them.

Btw, there's a Great Lakes fish called whitefish but this appears to be a type of white fish called whiting

I just looked this up for my own edification and thought I'd share. From Wikipedia:

The fish originally known by the name "whiting" in English is Merlangius merlangus, in the family Gadidae. This species inhabits the eastern Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, as well as the North Sea on the East Coast of Britain. In the USA, it is commonly known as the English whiting.

The lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeiformis) is a species of freshwater whitefish from North America. Lake whitefish are found throughout much of Canada and parts of the northern United States, including all of the Great Lakes.

There are many fish species that are euryhaline. Capable of living in fresh, brackish and saltwater.

I haven't seen the fish in the link if there is one.
There are freshwater fish called "Goldeyes'. They are often smoked.
Very common in Manitoba.https://www.google.ca/webhp?sourceid...ye+fish+photos

I hope for RB's sake it's not goldeye he has. From http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/opi...203886781.html

Quote:
Although some goldeye are caught in Manitoba as bycatch, most are imported frozen from northern Saskatchewan and then smoked in this province. After it's smoked, it'll turn to insipid mush if frozen.
