      Thanks Martin.

      Unfortunately, the morsky okoun slot has now been occupied by the delicious
      little sea bream that are slowly becoming available in some supermarkets.
      It's technically accurate - the bass is a member of the perch (okoun) family
      that lives in the sea. Shame about the other three or four hundred other
      fishes that qualify for the same name.

      'Kanic' is usually used for very big sea basses, known as groupers or
      gropers depending on your sources. Your question marks say everything about
      the acceptability and usage of the modifier.

        Well, Tony, then, there is no other way for you that to go to see one of
        Prague´s hypermarkets, locate the right bass on a bed of crushed ice and ask
        the nearest shop assistant how *they* would call it. He would probably
        answer something like "Eh?" or, if better educated, "Ryba".

        Good night to all
        Martin

          In addition to mor^sky' okoun, the Fraus Fishing Dictionary (Pohunek
          Martin) suggests Evropsky mor^c^a'k, or chutny' mor^c^a'k for
          Dicentrarchus labrax.

          Many thanks for the culinary advice and the toadstools can certainly
          wait.

          All the best,
