A Sea Bass By Another Name 

That's the real name of that endangered Chilean sea bass you raved about


Please pass this along to restaurant reviewer Liz Reich: Enjoy that pricey Patagonia Toothfish while you can. That's the real name of that endangered "Chilean sea bass" you raved about, renamed exclusively for marketing purposes by upscale fishmonger Lee Lantz because he knew he could charge a lot more money for it that way.

Most of these fish are illegally poached by pirates and are headed toward extinction. You might want to read "Hooked: Pirates, Poaching and the Perfect Fish" by G. Bruce Knecht - or maybe not, since it might make you look up from your plate.
