The male and female Lumpfish are very different both in appearance and in taste. First of all, the female is almost twice as big as the male and is of a different colour, with the male being slightly red and female blue-grey. There are names for each of the genders of Lumpfish in Icelandic: Grásleppa for female and Rauðmagi for the male. The male has a very high fat content, almost twice as Salmon, but the female has even more.
