Verifying Kosher Fish

Can you identify a kosher fish by its name?

It is not possible to establish the kosher status of a fish based on the fish’s name since fish names are not used in a precise fashion.  The proper way to verify the kosher status of a fish is to check for the presence of scales on the fish. The fish is kosher if the scales can be removed without tearing the skin of the fish.
