With reference to all the correspondence on what is a jewfish and whether there are any in India called by different names, I think it is best if I post these pictures of a silver jewfish that I caught for the members to see and discuss.







The vital statistics are: weight 19kg and length 1.36m.
It was caught using bait (sardine tail) with a 12 pound Maxima mono line. Date of capture was October 2002.

PS: Dr Aamir, I have posted these up through my son as the quality of pics was much better than the one I emailed to you. Thank you so much again for your kind offer.

Lest anyone be accused of being a racist and not politically correct,
I wish to clarify that " jewfish " is actually an abbreviation .

The fish is actually named "jewelfish" , for two reasons:

1. The colour of the fish is so silvery and shiny, especially in the
sunlight, that it sparkles like a jewel.

2. The second and more intriguing reason is that inside the head cavity of
the fish, there are two hard bony ,small sized "jewels"!

These are taken out by the knowledgeable anglers as trophies.

Apparently, in the light these sparkle just like jewels, hence the name
For the fish!

Oh, by the way, apart from dmelloralf no one has responded
whether the silver jewfish (reference the picture I have posted) is found in India?
