When I was in Sri Lanka on a vacation, on one evening they had some roasted fish cubes that was as hard as chicken meat. I am trying to find out what that might have been.
Maybe it was chicken that tasted like fish.

Mahi mahi is on the firm side. And delicious.

Most of the others already said what I will, but I'll repeat. Shark, Swordfish and Tuna.

Those are the three main ones that come to my mind.

Wrong preparation will make even swordfish fall apart...

Give Halibut a try, if you can find it and be able to afford if you do, i find the fish very sturdy to deal with in cooking process..
Tuna steaks are also in the same category in cooking applications...

cobia, wahoo (aka ono), shark is tasty and very firm, mahi if grilled correctly, tuna steaks, swordfish, tautog (aka blackfish), not many freshwater fish are naturally as meaty as these but walleye properly grilled or fried is too tasty to pass up.

Perhaps it was a dried fish. If so, it could have been almost any of the the fish listed by others.

Sturgeon is very firm but hard to find. Ahi tuna, especially if it is cooked until "done" and not served lightly seared (red in the center) is firm and as others mentioned swordfish and shark are quite "meaty".
