That's a nice catch Bro.

Went out on a 1.5 and some guys caught 3 at around 3:00 in the morning.
They estimated they were down about 600-700 feet.
I had some to eat with no problems, 5-6 ounces.

The issue as I understand it is Escolar and Oilfish are super similar both whole and as fillets. Escolar is ok in small quantities (really 4 oz is a lot of sushi), but oil fish is no bueno in any quantity.

I got some oil fish sold as escolar years ago. I ate MAYBE 2oz like I have many times before with escolar.

I can assure you it's nothing the "shits" you have experienced in the past. Nothing and I mean nothing like it.

Imagine a pack of black cat fireworks going off in your color again and again, with ZERO notice that slowly diminishes over SEVERAL days.

There are no words to describe this kind of intestinal trauma if you haven't experienced it.

Happy Holidays!

:)

The Problem with Escolar
Escolar cannot metabolize the wax esters naturally found in its diet. These esters are called gempylotoxin, and this is what gives the flesh of escolar its oily texture. The downside is that these esters are are very similar to castor or mineral oil, and when full portions of escolar are consumed, they can cause gastrointestinal symptoms.
To be frankly and bluntly specific — and I’m sorry for this — consumption of escolar causes explosive, oily, orange diarrhea. People have reported that the discharges are often difficult to control and accidents can happen while passing gas.

I personally know someone who ate an escolar steak one night, unaware of its side effects. The next day he was riding the elevator to his office when out of nowhere his bowels unleashed a surprise attack on his pants. As he said later, “Thank God I had my gym bag with me, which had a clean pair of underwear in it.” This explains why escolar is also called the “olestra fish” and the “ex-lax fish.”

The Japanese and Italian governments have banned the importation and sale of escolar for these reasons. The governments of Canada, Sweden, and Denmark require that all escolar come with warning labels. The FDA lifted the escolar ban in 1992 because the fish is nontoxic (sure, it causes embarrassing things to happen in your pants, but it won’t hurt or kill you).
So, Should You Eat Escolar?
In spite of all this, escolar is indeed very buttery and delicious, and should be enjoyed, but never in portions larger than six ounces. Portions below six ounces will not cause gastrointestinal distress. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Should also come with a roll of toilet paper

Escolar contains a wax ester called "gempylotoxin." This oil is similar to mineral or caster oil. Our body can't digest the material and consumed in greater quantities will definitely lead to gastrointestinal problems. In short, you will get EXPLOSIVE oily orange diarrhea. If you want simulate the effects without eating the fish, just drink a bottle of caster oil. Just make sure you have a change of underwear and don't have any plans for outdoor activities. Whatever you do, just don't fart, because its its going to end up as a shart.

It has a nickname, the "olestra fish" or the "ex-lax fish" for a good reason.
