Hello,
I have 2 questions in my mind:
1: What is a rawas fish? I remember having that yummy fish back home but don't know the English translation here in Canada.
2: Do we get it here??? :) and where??

I haven't heard of that fish in India either. Are you talking about rohu?

Apparently, Rawas is "Indian Salmon", according to -

But I have no idea what it looks like or where to get it in Canada.

Up until last year( and Probably its still operating), In Montreal, there was a Srilankan store on Jean-Talon (North of Indian populated area, just after the underpass).

He used to get Indian fish every alternative saturday. Store opened at 9:30am and by 10:30/11:00, everything was finished.

You could get lots of fish from Indian ocean: Rawas, Bombil, pomfret, machli, etc,etc...

Mmmm...Yummmy.... U just cant beat the taste of fish from the Indian ocean :)

:p bison

Iceman and Bison --

What does Indian Rawas really taste like?
I don't think I've ever had Rawas or even know what it looks like.

Salmon is actually a cold water fish, found only in the frozen waters of the North Atlantic and the Pacific.
What is Indian Salmon (Rawas)?

I once made a mistake, but I was wrong about it.

Yes, I have seen it in Chinese stores.
Frozen, of course, but whole.
