Looks a bit fishy to me !

Can anyone advise what this little fellow is. We caught 3 of them within 5 minutes using feathers in about 40 ft of water next to a rocky outcrop.

'this little fellow'

Indigenous to the British Isles, the species referred to is native to the Worsley area of Manchester, although sightings have been reported in locations as diverse as Kazakhstan, Russia and, to a lesser extent, Jordan and Syria. At week-ends it can frequently be observed on passage migration to North Wales where it seeks shelter in areas such as Cardigan Bay.

A gregarious creature by nature, it can often be seen basking in the Abersoch region in the company of vast throngs of fellow migrants and is instantly recognisable by its unmistakeably loud northern accent. In its natural habitat it will typically be found foraging offshore for chocolate teacakes or inbibing large quantities of Bailey's

Oh, you mean the fish? - it's a pollock.

I'm intrigued, where does this MeMe come from??
Maybe I'm not alone here but it is an odd name. Was it because when you were a child and someone said who wants some ice-cream (or wharever) - you always said MEME??
