Buying Tips

Bluefish should smell like the ocean without having a fishy odor. Whole fish should have clean gills and flesh that feels firm to the touch. The scales should be tight and the eyes should be clear. Fresh fillets should appear moist and have a lustrous sheen but no slime. The flesh should be dense, without tears or gaps.

Varieties

Bluefish is usually sold fresh, whole, or filleted. Smaller bluefish are called blue snappers.
