    2. Motha.

      Few fishes are called by the name Motha.

      Actual motha, also called urulan motha is actually cobia. This is the most tastiest and in demand among all

      Mahi mahi, or dolphin fish is called motha is markets. This fish is also know by the name 'chain cover' due to its shape

      We also have swordfish, which is sold as motha. The huge piece of round meat you find in the market which is sold, is of swordfish. This is mostly the fish, that is served at the restaurants, as the fish is pretty cheap and completly tasteless ( my personal opinion).
