Probably none right now, you have to spear them and our weather, for the most part, has been nasty for weeks. You can try Eaton street fish market, he’s had them in the past and unlike a large restaurant, whatever they have is there until it sells out. Not like putting it on a menu.

I will say they are some of the tastiest fish I've ever eaten. We deep fry them.

What would it be comparable to for other fish?

To me it tasted a bit like the butterfish i had once in antigua. Not sure what that fish is called here (or if there are any).

It is a very nice firm fish. Excellent light flavor. They have to be speared as they don't bite lines. Had amazing lionfish ceviche in Grand Cayman.

It’s light and sweet like yellowtail but a bit firmer.

It's a very mild, white, flaky, fish. The closest thing I can think of is grouper but better.

Yes, it is a pain to hunt because you literally have to hunt for it and not fish for it.

Well worth it if you get some though, it’s better than mullet IMO and I’m not a big fish eater.
