Funchal Things to Do: 239 reviews and 449 photos
The Black Scabbard is a fish that resides somewhere between 600 - 1600 meters below sea level. It is the traditional fish of Madeira, a quiet odd looking fish. To my tasting I am happy that I ate it before I saw it... :-) Apparently one can only catch it during night time, since it moves back down to the deep levels of the ocean as soon as there is light.
Directions: See the fish on the Farmers Market
