Default Fish names

Have done a search in the archive for the following, but unable to find specific answer to my Q...

Does anyone know what type of fish (in Eng) is the Spanish
'Lizo/Lizio?'.
I bought some filleted in the local supermarket, but put out the packet before I had written it down correctly...
A white fish, a little dry, but very tasty (+ very good marinaded from raw/sim recepie to boquerones)...
Smallish fillets, grey slightly stripy skin.
Is it mullet?

Any clues welcome!

I have never come across lizio or lizo, but that might be "lirio", called also bacaladilla in some regions (and I guess there might many other denominations). I believe it is called blue whiting in English.

Si te refieres a "lucio", el diccionario dice que en inglés es "pike".

Al mújol en algunos sitios le llaman lisa. El mújol es mullet.

Lisa is mullet - at least that's what they call it in Tenerife...

hmm your description doesn't sound like it though, it's quite a meaty fish.

Fishy pictures - local names are always a minefield though
