Wreckfish (Polyprion Americanus)
A large fish growing up to 2 metres - and sometimes known as Stone Bass. It occurs on both sides on both sides of the Atlantic as far north as Norway and Newfoundland.
It"s so called because of its habit of following bits of floating wreakage.
The meat is of good quality, and makes steaks that can be grilled or fried. Smaller fish are excellent baked whole.
