Call it Dogfish if you like, it's still shark.

At a chippie,,,,,,,Haddock was the popular fish in Scotland,and in England Cod.
Now its actually quite difficult to get either when buying fish and chips,unless you specify what you want and sometimes pay a small premium[certainly in Scotland] for a type of fish.
Hake in Cornwall,very popular,fish and chips in Rick Steins in Padstow £25,00 plus,along the road,£8,50.no haddock or cod on the menu.
As long as you enjoy,,,,,,,,,,,,,everyone has different tastes.

Too expensive, you can get the same thing for I think 140 Baht at Nana Pity on soi 88, at least you can on a Friday, not sure if it's the same price other days. I get the cod rather than the pangus at 220 Baht. :cheers: :thumb:

Not available after footie, and the photos they used to put all over Facebook looked far from being the same thing.

I stand corrected. I've never thought of it as a shark. I was also surprised to find there are 440 species of shark, the smooth dogfish being one of them.

Very interesting. I've been back in the UK for 7 weeks now, and the other day I found a local chippy that does plaice. At £4.80 (just for the fish) I thought it was pretty expensive, but translating that into Thai (c 220 THB?) makes it seem quite reasonable!

No, that's quite reasonable - plaice was always more expensive anyway.
