Hi, just curious... I saw a fish in NTUC labelled as Sea perch. Any clue what is this fish ? It said farmed locally.

Interesting, I've not seen this fish bred at local floating fish farms before. It looks like a Japanese Sea Perch. It's profile seems to be similar that of barramundi, being able to adapt from fresh and saltwater probably makes it a suitable for local breeding.

I wonder if its meat quality can match its price, Barramundi is still cheaper and widely accepted. Anyone wants to try it? :eyebrow:
