Wolffish ugly, tasty but not endangered

PORTSMOUTH — It may be ugly and it may be delicious, but the Atlantic wolffish is not an endangered species, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced last week.

With large jagged fangs, bulging brown eyes, a big nose, fat lips and the complexion of a rubber boot, the Atlantic wolffish has a face even a mother would find reprehensible. But the eel-like fish with jaws that can break an arm and an affinity for tasty crustaceans —and can fetch upwards of $4.50 per pound at the market — was the focus of a Conservation Law Foundation petition in the past year which sought to protected the species through the federal Endangered Species Act.
