Red sea bream

Red sea bream is a name given to at least two species of fish of the family Sparidae, Pagrus major and Pagellus bogaraveo. Pagellus bogaraveo is also known as blackspot sea bream.

In Japan, Pagrus major is known as madai (真鯛, or "genuine tai") and is prized both for its flavor and for its traditional use as an auspicious food often served at New Year's and festive occasions such as weddings. In Korea, it is known as beollak (볼락). Pagrus major is also the most commonly eaten fish in Taiwan. Also a closely related fish known as Pandora in the eastern Mediterranean.
