Meagre (lat. Argyrosomus regius) is a fish of the Sciaenidae family (lat. Sciaenidae), the fish living in dark places at depths greater than 30m. Meagre is a genuine, almost forgotten Adriatic white fish which was abundant in the Adriatic Sea hundred years ago. It is known as "the biggest shadow in world", it can weigh more than 100 pounds and grow longer than 2 meters! Cromaris meagre is farmed in Adriatic Sea.
This top-class whitefish has been placed on the market in 2011 under the brand name "Kornatska hama" (Kornati Meagre). The taste is most similar to sea bass and it is farmed alongside the islet of Košara near Kornati National Park.
