Took a cod charter from MA years ago and both species were caught. Both are good eating. I believe the anglerfish is the same or at least very similar to a monkfish. Monkfish is sold in most grocery stores, you basically eat the tail of the fish. Known as poor mans lobster, some good eating, believe it or not.
