About Bluefish

Much of the bluefish caught by commercial fishermen are an incidental catch. Average size is 3 to 6 pounds, but they can grow to over 12 pounds. The flesh is soft, with moist flakes. Moderately oily, it has a distinct assertive flavor. A small bluefish, (one to two pounds), is called a "snapper", not to be confused with true snappers. These juveniles feed mostly on crustaceans and have a more delicate sweet flavor. For a milder flavor, bluefish should be cooked without the skin. It is delicious smoked or grilled in foil.
