They must be difficult to cook because of the many bones, right? I never tried one :-)

Just spectacular Marta..
While young, we used to spearfish (Greece) and if we came upon one of these we sure treaded lightly..
They are very good to eat if you can get a hold of them..

Also because she was small compared to the adult size, it was very cute to find her
