Couldn't get onto your link there Coelocanth as it was blocked. But thanks for taking the time out to try and find out for me, and also to DKennon for letting us know :) But after looking up Lingcod, I can see why that fish was ''smiling'', coz it must of known that people shouldn't eat too much of it incase you get ill! ;)

Yep...I was wrong about the orange roughy...That's a different kettle of fish...The goosefish is also called monkfish. They're related to anglerfish. Not much info. on the Pacific species...but plenty on the Atlantic ones. This was interesting. Note the date:...http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive-free/pdf?res=F30C15F63F5E1A738DDDAE0A94D9405B888DF1D3

It also looks a bit like a huge stargazer...with those eyes on top. We have those here in the Indian River estuary...and they can deliver a non-fatal jolt of electricity to whoever handles one in a net or on hook and line.

My first guess(pre-Google that is)...given all the time I've spent looking at pics of fishes in books...is a goosefish. I think I've read that they range up into shallow water and have been known to eat seabirds if given the chance. This may also be what was served in seafood restaurants at one time(and may still be)as a cute sounding 'Orange Roughy' to appeal to seafood lovers...but I may be wrong about that.
