I think he means pics he has taken of fish - not fish he has taken. 
Why the hell are they selling (if they are) a fish that would gave you oily bright orange anal leakage??? Who would buy that? LOL

Interesting shots, mate. Have read about the disastrous effects of eating escolar. Why do they get kept? Is there some way of preparing them to make them safe, or do they just get fed to your enemies?

I think those really big jack macks arrived quite recently from Peru/Chile. Came over in an El Nino year and stuck around.

Just read in Wiki that escolar have been banned in Japan since 1977, as the govt. considers them toxic. The symptoms are pretty dreadful. So all the more interesting as to why they've been kept.

Escolar's wax ester content can cause keriorrhea (Greek: flow of wax), gempylotoxism or gempylid fish poisoning.[3] Keriorrhea is similar to diarrhea, only the body will expel yellowish-orange drops of oil instead of liquid bowel movements. Some individuals suffering from escolar-induced keriorrhea also report other digestive issues, including stomach cramps, diarrhea, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and anal leakage; onset may occur between 30 minutes and 36 hours following consumption.[4] This condition may also be referred to as steatorrhea.

Two known ways to reduce the likelihood of escolar-induced keriorrhea are to limit portions to six ounces or less and to consume portions close to the tail, which typically have a lower wax ester content. Reports conflict on whether deep skinning, freezing or grilling will reduce the likelihood of keriorrhea.

Not worth the risk, I reckon! Looks like quite an easy fish to mix up with oil fish. I wonder why they ended up in a fish bin? Berley?

I guess some people like it, and as said in small portions it is fine.
They're caught deep, either on long lines or trawled and often come up dead, in my view it's better to use a dead fish in any way as opposed to turfing its carcass overboard?

I doubt anyone would 'eat' them as you would a chunk of fish, but apparently used in some traditional medicines.
 BTW, they're not seahorses, they're Spiny Sea Dragons.

I think the Koueru is the most impressive fish I've posted Krow.
I'd doubt that many people would've seen them any bigger than that- even fewer would have pics to back up their claims.
 
Anyway, now for today's installment:
