Wolf Fish

Wolf Fish

Wolf fish (sometimes known as catfish, but not to be mistaken with the freshwater catfish farmed in the USA and elsewhere) prefers colder waters and is found more or less in latitudes from Scotland northwards, but right across the Atlantic. Liking these climes, it produces an antifreeze to keep its blood flowing. It's very ugly, with huge protruding teeth which keep it topped up with its favourite meals of sea urchins, clams and whelks (in Iceland, wolf fish known as the stone biter!). It produces superb white closely-flaked fillets, but frankly it's overfished and we are contemplating discontinuing sales of wolf fish.
