    What's the most over-rated , under-rated fish to eat

    Just wondering what everyone's preferences are ?

    For me the best eating is freshly caught ( like 10 minutes ago ) South Island blue Cod in my own Beer Batter concoction .
    Most over-rated ( I've lived in Australia to long ) Barramundi .

    Best eating deep sea has to be bluenose.
    Best eating inshore yellow belly flounder.

    Most underated fish of all time .



    The Jock Stewart/Moari chief/Sea perch.

    Overated.

    Snapper no contest.
    One of if not the best fish to catch but only pretty good eating wise.

    Our local resturant/bar has fresh (yes - fresh) Wahoo come in every Thursday. Sometimes Broadbill and Mahimahi too. Hard to beat if cooked right.

    Yeah, but they aren't really a real fish. Real fish live in the sea.

    I avoid most sea food like the plague. BUT, if its caught and bled straight away even kahawai is nice. Freshly smoked with brown sugar and soy sauce on sammys mmmm. I agree snapper is overrated. Gurnard, cod and kahawai are underrated.

    Spot on but JD would be first equal beside the Flounder.

    Snapper is very over rated in my humble opinion
