    Question Best type of fish for no Bones ?

    as the title of thread suggests :

    What are the very best types of "Fresh" boneless fish fillets to buy that have literally hardly any chance of getting a bone in them and also taste excellent ? (I know the supermarkets never guarantee no bones will ever be in fish labelled boneless, but you know what I mean).

    So far I know that Fresh Salmon or Tuna fillets are ideal because they are big thick/heavy/fat fish which I would imagine means that's the reason why you very seldom (if ever) get any bones from their fillets because most of the good meat isn't anywhere near the fish's spine bone like it always is on thin fish.

    I absolutely love the taste of very very fresh rainbow trout, but very often I have found bones in them even though they are stated as being boneless, I don't know what it is, but ever since I was young I have always hated when I even get one bone when eating a fish, I think its because I nearly choacked on one of the bones one time or something like that and after that any time I tried to eat fish I was always very causious incase there was a bone lurking somewhere, , lots of times I have even had a full big fish fillet infront of me and after one mouthful if I got a single bone in it I would just dump the whole lot right into the bin, I would never ever take the chance, no way !

    So I am hoping some of you guys are right into all the different types of fish etc and can tell me whats best to get for what I am asking please ?

    Thanks guys

    Don't think I've ever found a bone in a Whiting fillet.

    I have tried all that stuff, fresh cooked right out of the water, crocs, sharks, whale, octopus etc etc etc, to me they all have texture like rubber, anyways, that original question about bones is more important,

    p.s
    fresh sea crab cooked right infront of you whilst still alive is the best taste ever by the way, has to be straight out the ocean and cooked alive there and then though, same with muscles too, excellent, but anyway, back to the bones subject

    Bass seems to have a lot less bones than most of the fish I've eaten.

    I usually have just one feed of herrings in winter and chew well as herring seems to be bone armageddon.

    Your user name is Saltire while mine should be satire. Obviously there is a few bones in Bass otherwise the damn thing would fall to pieces.

    Bass is the king of fish............finest taste and the texture is excellent...............when bass is presented cooked whole you must eat it with two forks.............use them to remove the spine and bones without leaving any behind........to do this find the lateral line and remove the meat on both sides using both forks opposing each other..........then when the facing half of the spine is exposed grab it and lift it off the plate leaving the other half behind relatively bone free.

    Carp , Bream, Pike and maybe Chub. They deffo the best fish for bones, but i cant understand anyone wanting to chew a mouthful of bones. ?

    if you dont like bones then sea fish like Cod, Sea bass, Mackerel, once cooked you can lift the bone out in 1 piece . also sea bream. but my favourite is Tuna steak, superb fish without bones.

    willicks and muscles are nice too.

    squid is like chewing rubber

    prawns are nice.

    crabs are nice too but dodgy as **** , you must get them very fresh or you get a good chance of food poising.

    Jellyfish you asked

    As someone who has just started eating fish again after 40 years of not bothering, cod or haddock.

    I worked in Iceland for a while in the north west fjords and the only time all of the worms were removed from the fish was when we had an order from marks and spensers,so whatever fish you do get,maybe give them a try because their factory inspectors are shit hot.....
