Bronze or white grouper. A large fish similar to a sea bream, generally grey in colour. May be recognised from distinctive whites lines on the cheeks. These groupers are found more in the south of the Mediterranean than the north, particularly around Cyprus.
Grouper. The most common species, this is reddish or yellowish brown particularly popular in North Africa. Being firm and dense, and relatively bone-free, makes it good for poaching or grilling. Good cold.
Guitar fish. Violin fish. Named, as one might expect, from the elongated ray shape, resembling a string instrument. Found around Crete and the southern Mediterranean. Treated in the same way as angel fish.
Whiting. A member of the cod family with flaky, firm sweet flesh. It used to be called marling or merling. May also be hake.
The fry of multiple small fish from the southern Mediterranean such as sardines and anchovies, African anchovies and others.
