Napoleon fish

Some years ago Napoleon fish was on all Hong Kong restaurant menus. Recently it has become scarce due to excessive fishing and has therefore become very expensive. On board the “Jumbo” restaurant ships it can cost over 300 dollars a kilo. Its fleshy lips are considered a delicacy with aphrodisiac qualities and can cost over 400 dollars.
