Orange Roughy

Orange Roughy is a saltwater fish that dwells near the bottom of the ocean; it is a mild, white fish similar in texture, taste and nutritional value as tilapia. While it's similar to tilapia, there are a few notable differences; for example, orange roughy has less saturated fat and less calories per serving than tilapia. Orange Roughy has been overfished in the last few decades, and also has a relatively high mercury level compared to other fish, decereasing its popularity as a seafood choice in recent years.
