Populating in the ocean of tropical and subtropical of the Indian and western Pacific, threadfin breams belong to the fish family Nemipteridae. Its scientific name is Nemipterus, also goes by various other names, such as false snappers and whiptail breams, apart from the common name of threadfin bream. The threadfin bream we often see on the market is the golden threadfin, which comes in red or pinkish color, making it more striking than its counterparts. More often than not, threadfin breams also appear with markings of yellow or blue.
Regarding the anatomical structure of threadfin bream, the standard length is between 21 cm (8.27 inches) to 35 cm (13.78 inches), depending on the type. Nemipterus can be told apart from the other species of nemipterids due to the absence of a suborbital spine, with having one continuous dorsal fin, ten spines, and nine soft rays, as well as an anal fin with three spines and seven to eight soft rays. In Malaysian waters alone, there are approximately 19 species of threadfin breams, such as Japanese threadfin bream, five-lined threadfin bream, golden threadfin bream, yellow-banded threadfin bream, and rosy threadfin bream.
To keep living, threadfin breams eat small fishes, crustaceans, polychaetes, and cephalopods. A study has also proven that around 25 parasite species, including cestodes and isopods, seek harbor in threadfin bream, specifically the fork-tailed threadfin bream or its taxonomic name, Nemipterus furcosus. However, the fish is permissible for human consumption as the parasites are not transferable to humans. The Nemipterus goes through the hydrolysis process with the Alcalase enzyme of the original alkaline protease to eradicate spots made of proteins, as the enzyme possesses the highest hydrolysis ability. On top of that, the process will produce the Alcalase's by-product, hydrolysate, assisting the threadfin breams to have the perfect blend of umami, salty, bitter, sour, and sweet fishy flavor.
