Effects of consumption

Like its relative the oilfish (Ruvettus pretiosus), it cannot metabolise the wax esters (Gempylotoxin) naturally found in their diet, which accumulates to give an oil content in the muscle meat of 18–21%. These wax esters may rapidly cause gastrointestinal symptoms following consumption; however, these effects are usually short lived.

The gastrointestinal symptoms, called "keriorrhoea", caused by these wax esters may include oily orange diarrhea, discharge, or leakage from the rectum that may smell of mineral oil. The discharge can stain clothing and occur without warning 30 minutes to 36 hours after consuming the fish. The oil may pool in the rectum and cause frequent urges for bowel movements due to its lubricant qualities and may be accidentally discharged by the passing of gas. Symptoms may occur over a period of one or more days. Other symptoms may include stomach cramps, loose bowel movements, diarrhea, headaches, nausea, and vomiting.

To minimize the risk of symptoms, strict control of portion size is recommended as well as preparation methods that remove some of the oil (e.g. grilling). Portions should be no greater than 6 ounces.

yikes is right!!:eek:

seems like there are two different escolar.
The plain ole escolar appear to have finlets like tuna species do, while the Roudi escolar do not. It appears this fish doesn't have the finlets.

But from everything I've seen online, the mouth on this doesn't look right to be an escolar. Not saying it's not, just from the photos looks a little different.

if you access the original link, the ppl over at fishmojo are still trying to id this thing -- seems to be a difference of opinion on the shape of the "nose" and the fins....so if it's not an escolar, what else might it be?

this might help

I sent an email to the guy who has this website http://www.thejump.net/id/id.htm

Included a photo of the fish and a link to the original post over on fishmojo and told him it had washed up on the beach near Hatteras.

As soon as I get the reply, I'll post it here, OK??
