Yes to Cuban Gar, No to Its Eggs
Cuba is home to a wide range of exotic creatures, including the Cuban garfish, known locally as manjuar. It’s a freshwater fish that lives in brackish waters in western Cuba and on Isla de la Juventud. The fish can be hard to come by, but if you do, you’re free to prepare it any way you like for dinner.
Garfish is completely fine to eat. The flesh isn’t flaky, but it doesn’t have that distinct odor that freshwater fish give off, either. Some foreign travelers say that Cuban garfish tastes like chicken, but nearly everything tastes like chicken nowadays. Don’t eat the eggs, though. They’re highly toxic and might cause you to ruin your dinner.
