Threadfin was fresh but sweetness of fish was below expectations. Size of fish also seemed small for 1.8 kg. Pricey for the quality and size.
A few times purchase from them , all was good . Bought 2 threadfin , 1 was very good while the other was rubbery texture and can’t bite it at one corner of the fish.
Don’t seem fresh so end up throwing it away.
Steamed the fish and it taste good and most importantly why i decide to buy from here is the option of cuts. The child cut really make it easy for me to use what i need for my kid’s meal. I will buy again and the price is right.
It's very fresh with no fishy smell. However it is not my preferred fish as the meat isn't juicy/fatty kind. Nevertheless if threadfin is your kind of fish, this is worth purchasing!
