Opah are an unusual looking fish – they have round, flat, body that’s silvery gray in color. Toward the belly, the silver shades to a rose red, dotted with white spots.

There also wasn’t much of a market for the fish. In the late 1980s, the state of Hawaii started promoting opah to build a market among U.S.
