Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Opah, otherwise known as moonfish, is frequently caught near which of these islands?

Answer: Hawaii

A lean and gray meat is obtained from the opah, a traditional gourmet fish from Hawaii. Considered a good luck fish, it was quite suitable as a gift during traditional times. Now, it might most often be found as a selection in a sushi bar!
2. Off what country's coast are you most likely to see Patagonian toothfish caught?

Answer: Chile

Patagonian toothfish, aka Chilean or Antarctic sea bass, is a denizen of the Southern Ocean. Patagonia is a section of southern Argentina and Chile. Formerly a common delicacy, this fish is now threatened and measures have been taken to protect it from becoming endangered.
3. Chum, sockeye, and chinook are all species of what very common and well-loved food fish?

Answer: Salmon

Salmon fishing is very popular along the Pacific seaboard of North America, where these species are still quite abundant. Salmon is a wonderful sushi fish, and is also used in a variety of wonderful dishes (I love salmon loaf!)
4. It is called 'mahi-mahi' in Hawaii, but what is another common name for this delicious sea fish?

Answer: Dolphinfish

The dolphinfish should not be confused with the dolphin, which is a sea mammal. Mahi-mahi is another traditional delicacy of Hawaii, very popular with natives and tourists alike. The fish is also known as the 'dorado'.
5. Wolf Eels are generally very large creatures, ranging to lengths of up to six feet. Is it true that they are considered a delicacy in some countries?

Answer: Yes

Generally ranging up to 6 feet in length, and weighing up to 40 pounds, they are often seen off the coast of Japan. The Japanese have made them a delicacy, along with many other eel varieties. In fact, eels are considered gourmet cuisine along the entire Asian Pacific seaboard. Thank you for trying this quiz on for size, I hope you enjoyed it!
