From what I have seen from over there it really doesn't matter. If you caught it you can eat it.

The seafood section in the supermarket looks like the bait section at Walmart.

I plan on it ....Im not worried about eating it, I just like to be able to identify fish so that I can tell others what I have caught. Most of the locals here do not speak english and so they have a name for it, but you know how that goes
