A "rueda" is a fish steak, as opposed to a "filete" or fillet. The rueda (which literally means "wheel") is cut crosswise, the filete lengthwise.

"Cotorra" is a parrotfish in some Spanish-speaking countries. But common names can vary from country to country and even area to area.

"Carite" is a mackerel in some Spanish-speaking countries, a mako shark in others.

Carite - fish, I see is known as Cero Mackerel Thanks to

Hope this helps, I don´t like it very much, mind you I only liked european mackerel if eaten within two hours of being caught.

Thank You...Those names were on the fish in the market...perhaps rueda also implies a steak cut vs filet...It was frozen food which all looked looked like fish and was with other seafood..maybe there is a parrot fish,,,I'll do some research....
