Chilean sea bass: What’s in a name?

My coworker just started eating lunch… some type of pungent fish concoction. The horrid odor reminded me that I should post something about the Chilean sea bass, I mean, the toothfish.

The Chileans were the first to market toothfish commercially in the United States, earning it the name Chilean sea bass, although it is really not a bass and it is not always caught in Chilean waters.
