"The monkfish is a common fish in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. It averages a metre in length, with a huge head and a brownish, scale-less body. It is such an unsightly fish that it is sometimes referred to as a "toad" or "sea devil". Up until a century ago, monkfish caught in fishermen's nets were thrown back into the sea, because their repulsive appearance made them look like monsters that brought bad luck. And yet, the fine, firm flesh of the monkfish is much appreciated by fish lovers".
