So when asking the quality of your fish here are some things to know.

1. There is no real grading system in place, it's all personal opinion.

2. When someone someone states their opinion on the grade it is not meant to disparage the fish. If someone says your fish is "Low Quality" or "Low Grade" they are not saying it to be mean or insult.

3. Typically buying fish at a local store will be low quality/grade so don't expect much.

For those interested this is how I personally rate.

1-3 = Low Grade/Quality
4-6 = Medium Grade/Quality
7-9 = High Quality
10 = Masterpiece

Remember, if you like the fish then the grade or quality of the fish should not matter.
