Wrasse (Labrus Bergylta)
A fish found in the waters of the Mediterranean and North Atlantic, belonging to the Labridae family. They are culinary of mediocre value, best stuffed and baked, or as an ingredient for fish soup. They need very careful handling, as they have sharp spines along their back, which can give you septic wounds.
