Burbot (Eelpout)

With its slimy skin and tendency to wrap itself around your arm, the burbot is considered by many anglers to be the "ish" of fish. But this cousin to the saltwater cod, commonly known as eelpout, is a remarkable predator that is excellent to eat.

The burbot looks like a cross between an eel and a catfish. It has a long body with smooth skin and a single whisker under its chin.
