2 different fish, one edible (or so people say but i reckon they taste a bit bit weedy) one not. You do not want to eat a zeb.

Yeah as above two different fish, look and behave differently under the water too

The zebs have clear triangle/tapering stripes while luderick have lighter vetrical stripes. Each has a different number of stripes but I can't remember the numbers

A good beer batter and the zebbies are alright on the fang. Soft and succulent. Nice vietnamese dipping sauce helps too.

Of course a good beer batter can make a dog turd acceptable....

In comps any blue on the chin and it will be called a hybrid which is recorded as a blue throat not a black parrot fish.
