For China

but the colour is light. However you can just see the lines. The eye is positioned where it should be IMO for a Chinaman. Not bad to blood the boat with that.

Question - where did you get it from as this may help with ID for certain.

Oops saw the forum.

Still say Chinaman.

How did you rate it on the table

Thu, 2014-04-03 16:28

In the eastern states and other places it is the number one carrier of Ciguetera, so everyone avoids them (even here)

But they are very safe in WA and I enjoy the firm white flesh.
