      HI Chef

      an interesting list and useful information, I wrote a hub using Barramundi which you might be interersted in.

      My source of this fish has ended, I know that they farm it in the States.

      Pollack is another under rated fish, it has lots of taste and unlike haddock and cod which have been over fished it is still plentiful.

      good hub
