We have all gone for sushi, none of us knew what the hell we were REALLY eating, give the guy a break.

I ask myself that question any time I pull up to a fastfood joint.

true, the restaurant has never asked me to identify the fish for them either.  So I assume its generic fish
Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.

My biggest worry is that my wife(when I'm dead)will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it

That roach coach burrito you had for dinner I'd worry about more than sushi!

Sorry you are offended,
This community is made up of fisherman that respect our surroundings. When I see a pick of a fresh fish, still in the water, it is assumed a fresh catch (poss a bad assumption). Than an open question about identification. Than a half explanation about fish .....
Maybe I was a little quick on the draw, but you left a lot open for a very bad interpretation 
As stated earlier,
You definitely have our attention,
Please fill in some necessary details.

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

Damn, what a cliffhanger!  Photos that barely allow for an ID, followed by an unexpected story of buying an unknown fish from a mysterious merchant who specializes in selling live fish.  Somehow this reminds me of the movie Gremlins, with the dad buying the Mogwai/Gizmo from the mysterious Asian merchant  :smt044.

I'm still groovy with a sablefish ID, but certainly not 100%.  Bluestar, I hope you come back because your story has me hooked!

Sablefish are GREAT eating. And I believe they catch them by trap, making by-catch minimal, so it's a good fish to buy in terms of sustainability. They're deep-dwellers, though, so catching with rod and reel is difficult/impossible.
May the fish be mighty and the seas be meek...

Sable fish AKA black cod are commercially caught by long lining. They have a very high fat content
My father was asked by a friend to smoke some black cod that he brought back from Alaska. There is so much fat in the flesh that fish oil dripped to the bottom of the smoker, filledup the pan and spilled outside the smoker.  The smoked cod finished up being about a third of its original size. The smoker clean up was long and smelly and my father promised to never smoke that stuff again

I was given some by my nephew early this year that he took part in catching long line as a deck hand.
It was so so imo...very slippery and cooked up kind of bland..
I thought by how white and soft it was that it was going to be VERY good-it was okay is all
