1. Whitesaddle goatfish
You might not have heard of this one and frankly we were a bit surprised to see it top the poll. We would have figured that one of the more familiar fish, such as salmon or mahi-mahi, would win this contest. However, the whitesaddle goatfish took the number-one place as the tastiest fish on the poll. Also known as kumu, one of the few places you could fish for this species is Hawaii, and spearfishing is generally preferred.

They are apparently unique among fish because they taste a lot like shrimp. They are also pretty expensive, so it might be better to dive for your dinner instead.

In your defense I believe the 2nd largest working cattle ranch in the U.S. is on the Big Island...

Goes to show you, the internet doesn't have a clue.
They rate Trout over AHI, lol.
In Hawaii they toss throw nets for little reef fish, not my way of fishing.
they missed Ono and Pompano.

Ate some barracuda we caught when in Belize. Got some funny looks when I said "well take the cuda" took it to the local restaurant with the grouper and snapper and damn, I see why we got the funny looks - they wanted the good fish. Always been told, na its no good, only locals eat that. Damn tasty 'cuda!

Butter fish is one of my fav's.
I think it is black cod marinated in a sauce that is money! Can't go wrong!

Probably more of a case of two things...the person voting maybe only ever had trout and bass ever in their life so they voted based on that...or they had it prepared with so much other **** that they couldnt actually taste the fish and didnt know any better (lol see lake trout)...
