Sand tilefish are typically caught in deeper water
over sand. These snake-like fish are in the family Malacanthidae
and tend to build mounds out of rubble or shells to
hide in. The fillets of the sand tilefish are firm and
white but beware of their mercury load. Mercury is higher
than average in these fish on the east coast and are
off the charts on the west coast of Florida.
