- Order number: 664619
- Farmed in Turkey and Greece
- Similar to sea bass, but less refined and less expensive
Also known as corvina or meagre, stone bass is fairly new to the UK. It's a farmed fish which grows to a very handsome size - much bigger than most farmed sea bass. The fillets yield two thick portions from the front and a thinner portion from the back. This is the thinner one - same fish, same taste - just not quite as luxurious and therefore a little bit cheaper. The flavour of stone bass is good whilst not being in the same realm as sea bass. It's a nice, well-priced fish that we think is here to stay on the British menu. Want to know more about stone bass?
