American Harvestfish is a small fish, generally eight inches in length. The Harvestfish is also known locally by other such names as “Starbutterfish” or more simply “Butterfish.” The fish are a silvery green from above with a deep curved body and small mouth. Aptly named, they’re smooth and butter fish with fine flaky white flesh. They are a great fish to eat whole because of their low bone count.
