Patagonian Toothfish

Patagonian Toothfish

The Patagonian toothfish is considered one of the tastiest fish you can buy.  It has distinctive white flesh, high in oils with an even texture. The meat is sold under the trade names Chilean Sea Bass in the USA, Merluza Negra in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay where it is relatively cheap, and Mero in Japan, where it is sold at high prices.
