Default What is the Japanese name for escolar?

I'd heard it was "abura bouzu" but when I search for that, it comes up as "skilfish." Does anyone know the actual Japanese word for escolar?

According to
http://www.sushifaq.com/sushi-sashim...i-terminology/ it is

Abura Bouzu (ah-boo-rah boh-zoo) or Abura Sokomutsu (ah-boo-rah
soh-koh-moo-tsoo) This is Escolar (Oilfish) and sometimes called
Shiro Maguro, although it is not tuna and should not be confused with
that fish.

Looking up skilfish, I see that it's a different species from escolar.
I wonder whether it's just a typo for oilfish.

I've heard it called mutsu.. Shiro Maguro refers to albacore tuna.

Yes, usually. It literally mean "white tuna," even though there is no
white tuna.

The only fish called mutsu in Japanese that I can find is bluefish.
