My mate caught a 3lb+ trigger fish off mumbles pier. Gutted it there and then, wrapped it in foil, and slapped it on the bbq that we took with us. After 25 minutes the skin just peals off. A very meaty texture and very few bones, but not a huge amount of flavour either. Still, it wasn't unpleasant and I can now tick another one off the "eaten" list.

Just to clarify, Weever fish are edible, but its the greater weever not the lesser weever. The greater weever is found in deep water, and is less poisonous than its cousin the lesser weever. they also grow much bigger and can be found in fishmongers here too. Cheers.Mick

I wouldnt go near the trout you can reel in on Brighton pier, but if you want to catch one, the best location is behind the karaoke bar near the top.
My mate hooked one which was at least 120lb!

It was once said that poeple inland will eat skate better than the poeple who eat skate fresh from the sea. This is becuase cartilaginous fish i.e. skate rays and sharks- have a diferent gill structure to other fish, so instead they maintain a supply of urea within their bloodstream . the urea is rich in other minerals, which prevent the fish losing their bodily fluids to saline water by osmosis. when they die the urea starts to break down and is released as ammonia. basicly the dead fish purges it self. after 2 or 3 days the process is complete and the fish is ready for the pan. This is why you should nt eat fresh skates.
I have got this information FISH BOOK by river cottage it is an excellent read tells you about every thing you can eat from sea and fresh water in this country and gives good advice on size limits and endangered species.
And some bloody good recipes.

I thought that there had been a big clean up of our waters Andy. Before the cleanup raw sewage was pumped into the sea all around our coasts so there were plenty of nasties floating around and fish were abundant and folk still ate them. Mind you there was the Black Death but I think that was Rats and originated down South lol big grin big grin

Rabbi2 dont if I have misunderstood you but the urine taste of skate has nothing to do with water quality it is just how they deal with salt water that makes them produce urea in there blood stream.
Thanks
Andy
