Comments:

The Filipino national fish is milkfish. The milkfish is a national symbol of the Philippines, where it is called bangus. Because milkfish is notorious for being much bonier than other food fish in the country, deboned milkfish, or "boneless bangus", has become popular in stores and markets.
Bangus (milkfish) can be bought in Filipino stores and whitefish, mullet, butterfish or porgy may be substituted.
