Unlike the European Eel (page 39), the Conger is never found in freshwater, preferring temperate waters around the Mediterranean and North Atlantic. While not as highly regarded, Conger can be prepared and cooked in the same ways, but gets bonier towards the tail and it ranges in size typically from 2-7kg. One of the best fish in terms of maintaining its freshness.
Icefish This fish (Dissostichus eleginoides) has an identity crisis! It’s also known around the world as Patagonian Toothfish, Antarctic Sea Bass and Chilean Sea Bass, but it should only be marketed in the UK as Icefish or Toothfish. It’s a rich tasting fish, like an oilier Bass or Cod, and is found in deep waters of the South Atlantic.
