Durnbuhmanj (Black Bream) by Allan NamaniyuoNew

Durnbuhmanj (Black Bream)

Durnbuhmanj (Black Bream, Hephaestus fuliginosus) live in fresh water. Durnbuhmanj is like Burd (Bream), but it’s bigger and black. We catch lots of Black Bream with fishing lines in rivers and creeks where the water is flowing. We cook it on the fire or in the hot ashes, or in a traditional ground oven. It’s good eating and has lots of flesh on it, it tastes a lot like other freshwater fish.
