    Does anyone know how to say mojarra in English? It's a type of fish.

    Thanks! Is bluegill a common fish? Mojarra is one of the most common here in Mexico.

    A slang version I have come across at work (immigrants from Puebla, Mexico).

    Mojarra = mojado, or a slang term for an illegal immigrant from Mexico.

    Here in Pennsylvania, USA, we have plenty of Bluegills in fresh water ponds. In my collection of Spanish vocabulary cards I have one where I wrote Mojarra - tongue, [cuchillo] short broad knife. But I can't remember where I got that information. Whoops now I see where - Collins on line dictionary.
