    Rock salmon has always been Smoothies or Spurdogs as far as Wheelers and Copseys in Maldon and was concerned, some of the older Essex folk used to call it wrongly Huss unless of course we did get Bull Huss?

    Rock eel was conger because it lives, literally, in the rocks and they're tough customers.
    Rock crab was not crab that was overcooked, nor that lived in the rocks as they live elsewhere here and mud crab doesn't sound as appealing.
    Rock salmon was cod because it was common and cheaper than real salmon but they got a higher price.
    Rocks were the hard bits of chip ends and bits of batter.
    Rock lobster was the shells used to boil up for stock, not just a song by the B52s.
    Rock bass is mackeral, sea bass is more tender as it's been marinated in saltwater for several years, mackeral get to die younger and hence are marinated for less time.
    Rock con was dogfish being sold as something else.

    Some of this must stick surely, some of it might even be true...........

    In Silver Darlings restaurant in Aberdeen last year I ordered "Rock Turbot" as I was intrigued by the name and could not guess what it would be. I asked the waitress what it was, and she explained that it was a "Turbot, that lived near rocks"

    When the elongated fillets arrived I was none the wiser but the dense white flesh and firm texture put me in mind of monkfish (Angler Fish, to us sea anglers).

    Research later revealed "Rock Turbot" to be the chefs' name for wolf-fish or catfish i.e. the impressively toothed creature looking like a giant species of blenny found in the northern North Sea and Atlantic. Anything less like a turbot I cannot imagine but it tasted good and so it should for the price I paid...
    A pinch of experience is worth a peck of theory.

    When I grew up in Thanet in the 50s Rock Salmon was Dogfish also known as Rig (I prefered that over Cod)
    Never heard of Rock Eel or any of the others
