Can anyone identify these fish?

Can anyone identify these fish? The seller just said they were "birthday boys" (jarige job in dutch) which is not actually the name of a fish species as far as I can find out lol

    OP here reverse image search suggests it might be some kind of red grouper or hammour.

      They look different. They look like some sort of rock cod to me.

      Also why did he call them Birthday Boys? Gave me a light chuckle. Was he hinting that it was his birthday?

        "Birthday boy" is Dutch slang for fish filled with illegal drugs, hidden inside for smuggling by the Clogga Nostra. I don't think they're suitable for eating afterwards.

        >tfw you try to hint that it's your birthday to a customer because no one in your life cares enough to say Happy Birthday anymore but he just looks confused and starts googling fish names

    They're some type of red fish. They're likely edible, given that they were sold to you by a fishmonger. Given the info you've provided, I'll bet they'll taste meaty and like seafood, and the flesh should flake apart. You should try cooking it to make sure that it is indeed fish, there's no other way of telling. Good luck!

      Bullied by fishmonger, many cases in medieval records.

      wanted mackerel, out of mackerel, asked for an alternative
      not that it had much to do with mackerel

      heads off for soup stock
      steam one with lemon
      steam the other oriental style with soy-sauce, ginger, onion
      bone apple teat
      >but i need to know the exact name or species!!!
      who cares?

      >>but i need to know the exact name or species!!!
      >who cares?
      just curious, in the end I just pan-fried them and they were ok

      They look different. They look like some sort of rock cod to me.

      idk some salesman's bullshit lmao
      I never really know what to get at a fishmonger tbh, except mackerel or seabass. Don't want that flavourless pale stuff like tilapia. Maybe I'll try dorade next time they always seem stocked on that
