Brutto, ma gustoso!

Greetings Tihomir. This evil looking fish is similar to the species found in the Northern waters called Angler or Monk fish. They have very powerful jaws, can weigh up to 15kg and are delicious to eat.

Best wishes

Hi Jim! This is the same fish that you have described. It's ugly but tasty and very appreciated in Croatia, but it is rare. This one on the photo weighted 8 kilograms.

Greetings, Tihomir

Rare too in the Northern waters now Tihomir, they are one of the most expensive fishes to buy at around £25 per kg. here in the UK.

Tihomir, this is a great photo. I like it because it gives a big personality to the fish, like a portrait. He almost has human quality. Look at those sharp teeth!
