Btw, there's a Great Lakes fish called whitefish but this appears to be a type of white fish called whiting
You were spot on with your link. My friend verified yesterday that indeed it was the same fish and the same manufacturer.

I hope i don't have that either. It looks like this is settled. Now, what to do with it. I wish I had left it frozen.
I guess it should last a good while in the fridge?

Whenever we drive through Winnipeg on the way to either side of the country my ritual is to buy some Kryopacked smoked Goldeye. They last forever in the fridge unopened. I did once have frozen then thawed GE. Yes it was awful!

Had this fish been in its original package, I would not have asked about it.
And yes, I'm concerned about it being frozen no matter the type of fish.
My friend and his wife are far from culinary masters.
You would think this fish was separated from its original package as its in a vacuum bag from a roll.

Can your friend contact the person who gave him the fish to find out if it had been frozen?
If so the texture will not be the same as unfrozen fish.
I see 'Previously Frozen' packages of fish in the local stores sometimes. I don't buy it.

I came up with an excellent idea. I'm going to taste/try it!

Thanks for all the suggestions and merry Christmas to all.
