It has a low oil content and a delicate, flaky texture that is ideal for grilling, baking, or poaching. Meager has a mild, sweet and delicate flavor that is often compared to sea bass or cod. The meat is white, firm and moist with a delicate flakiness that is retained when cooked properly. It has a subtle nutty and buttery taste with a slightly earthy flavor that is characteristic of freshwater fish. Line caught meager tends to have a higher quality flesh compared to conventionally caught meager, as the fish is caught and handled with care to minimize stress and damage. This results in meat that is firmer, juicier, and has a more delicate and refined flavor. The texture is also smoother and more consistent, without the bruising or tearing that can occur with other fishing methods.

Chefs often prefer line caught meager for its superior taste and texture, as well as its sustainability and ethical sourcing. It is a popular ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, where it is often grilled or baked and served with flavorful herbs and spices.
