Other names: Cutlassfish, largehead hairtail
Ribbonfish or Cutlassfish have a striking appearance. Most of them are bright silver and almost reflective. They have yellow eyes and a long mouth filled with sharp teeth. They are often caught by Net and sometimes by Hook. Hook caught are a bit more expensive than Net caught.
Ribbonfish is one of the favorite food fish in China, Japan, Korea, … but also widely embraced by other East Asian countries. The flesh is between flounder and sea trout – mild with a hint of briny, ocean flavor. The texture is delicate, with white, flaky meat.
