Gilt-head (sea) bream
The gilt-head (sea) bream (Sparus aurata) is a fish of the bream family Sparidae found in the Mediterranean Sea and the eastern coastal regions of the North Atlantic Ocean
The gilt-head bream is generally considered the best-tasting of the breams. It is the single species of the genus Sparus – the Latin name for this fish – which has given the whole family of Sparidae its name. Its specific name, aurata, derives from the gold bar marking between its eyes.
The Seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) is a primarily ocean-going fish that sometimes enters brackish and fresh waters
It is also known as the sea dace. Highly regarded as a table fish, it is often marketed as Mediterranean seabass, loup de mer, robalo, lubina, spigola, branzino, or bronzino.
The Seabass is a member of the Moronidae family. The name Dicentrarchus derives from the presence of two anal spines (“di” = two, “kentron” = sting, “archos” = behind, anus), although there may be even three. It has silver sides and a white belly. This fish’s operculum is serrated and spined.
