Help me ID my sashimi Part 2

Last March I posted a query asking help to ID the fish in my sashimi plate:
A big thanks to those who posted replies. I learned a lot and since then have started to learn how to discern and appreciate different fishes. Recently I ordered a sashimi platter from a different place; I was dining with others and didn't get to ask the server or sushi chef about the fish, so I'm turning to the wisdom of the board.
Here's my sashimi platter:
I'm returning to this restaurant this weekend and would love a repeat of the pure white fish in the top right (if it's available) but I have no idea what it is. And for the rest of the plate, I have guesses but would like help confirming my guesses.
Wow, that pure white one is a mystery and I eat a reasonable amount of sushi/sashimi. Where do you live?
upper row, left - either kanpachi or shima aji
upper row, middle - salmon, of course
upper row, right - mystery fish
lower row, left - looks like snapper (tai?)
lower row, middle - tuna (maguro)
lower row, right - yellowtail (hamachi)
from upper left going clockwise:
Yellowtail, Salmon, Tako (octopus), Albacore, Maguro tuna, and Amberjack
That's my best guess...
