Hardly surprising but still a sad commentary on our world to see that only 40% of quiz takers recognize Tilapia as a common farmed fish while over 80% know that a stingray killed Steve Irwin.

What is sad about more people knowing about the famous and outlandish death of a beloved conservationist than about a fish that is not a household name, can be hard to spell, and has a reputation as not being very good?

I agree. I think the death of a good man is much more memorable than a bland fish that got trendy for twenty-five seconds.

I've always called an anglerfish, a monkfish and from the wiki it seems they can also be called frogfish and footballfish too. Why has it got so many names?

There are many types of anglerfish. While all of them have the three appendages with the foremost one being used to a lure in prey, not all of them have "bioluminescence". The "Football" fish does as does the answer that QM was looking for. However, Monkfish, do NOT have bioluminescent "esca". It should not be accepted as an answer.
