Is Monkfish Kosher?

Rob | Feb 18, 2004 03:15 PM

I know Monkfish has both scales and fins. Yet, I notice great debate as to whether they are kosher. Can someone please provide not only their opinion, but the reasoning as to why they are kosher/not-kosher?

Are they similar to swordfish and sturgeon in that they are recognized as kosher by Conservatives and non-kosher by Orthodox?
