    Dear old Blackall - one of several names including painted sweetlip. Looks like it to me. Plenty will tell you they are rubbish to eat but I dont mind them as long as they are fresh. For me though its probably a case of beggars cant be choosers.

    Yep I agree blackall. Painted sweetlip. MIL fish but I reckon they're ok. Like PoMo, it's a case of that or nothing mostly for me.

    My MIL loves them. I get in trouble for throwing fish back instead of taking them around to her place for a feed LOL. Same as above though - treated properly and eaten fresh not as bad as the reputation suggests.
