to comment on the worthless fish known as the drum, i know of THE worthless fish that is utterly impossible to eat. im from south Texas and there is a fish here known as the Buffalo fish. It looks promising, but its so full of bones that i think you would have better luck knawing on a jagged window pane.

SUP, welcome to the Straight Dope Message Boards!

It’s very helpful when you start a new topic, if you provide a link to the column or Staff Report being discussed. That way, others can be on the same page and know what you’re referring to.

In this case, I think you mean: Is the drum fish the world’s most useless fish?
