Thanks  I have raised this gian characin to 30 or 40 lbs before but never tossed one on the grill.  I talked to a columbian who said they are very tasty
It's a dark meat fish...some like it but many don't.

It's come up in discussion before with a number of knowledgeable folks chiming in with their opinions:

There are some comments on eating them in wikipedia. Apparently Teddy Roosevelt thought they were delicous and the Brzilian's like to eath the ribs. I have started my system with them but need to get another 50 or so. Do you happen to know of a source for them in the US. Preferably SE or Florida? Tx Hap Perry

Hap - I have not ordered any as my winter temps are to low.  If I ever move inside I want to raise them.  They are a cool fish and a lot of fun.
