Best Answer

Yes they can.

In Europe and North America, the tail meat of fish of the genus Lophius (known as goosefish (North America) or monkfish), is widely used in cooking and is often compared to lobster tail in taste and texture.

In Asia, especially Korea and Japan, it is considered a delicacy.
