North shore head boats called them conger eels also. I believe back in the 80s we were allowed to keep wolffish, but for some reason few did. We were all after  cod and macks. 

Once you took the head off there there is not much left.

Yes, voracity is a word but you should have used the word veracity instead of voracity.    

I would have expected this correction from Burkie not you!

You can still keep cusk, aka ocean pout. You can’t keep wolffish anymore. Wolffish are delicious, cusk not so much.

In Mass we can’t keep ocean pout.

Do you know what aka means? It means also known as. E.g. another name for cusk is ocean pout.

similar but different.

 

Keeping pout is prohibited. And I believe you can keep as many cusk as you want… but not 100% sure on the cusk.
