Menola is a name of a fish known as blotched picarel (Spicara maena) used in Italy, Slovenia and Croatia.

It belongs to a family of fish called Centracanthidae in the order Perciformes, known as picarels. They are found in the eastern Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean. The anal fin has three sharp spines, hence the name, from Greek kentron meaning "sharp point" and akantha meaning "thorn". Despite the similarity of the English or common name, it is unrelated to the pickerel or northern pike.
