Do You Eat Fish?

Just curious to see who eats fish and if people have thoughts about it.

Personally, I am very cautious about my fish choices because of sustainablility.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.

I love eating fish, although when I catch them, by the time I get them cleaned and cooked I'm not really in the mood anymore. I'm still a seafood fanatic though.

I like most fish. Last couple of years we have done a lot of birthday dinners (both mine and my wife's family) at sushi restaurants. I know some people have a hard time with eating fish and owning them as pets, but it doesn't really bother me. Besides, guppy's don't look all that tasty.
If wishes were fishes... I'd need a few more tanks!

No. Not because I don't believe in it, just don't like the taste! Not a fan of any seafood.

I love eating fish! Baked, grilled, fried! And every other way! I can't eat sushi though, the texture triggers gag reflexes like mad lol. Although I can have shrimp tempura.

I don't see the connection from fish I eat to fish I keep, it's just not there.

I'd like to play the stereotypical english guy and say I only really eat battered cod and chips. Lol Cod is over fished, and in the uk were starting to get alot more captive bred cod and replacements which are labeled as cod, but are not.

Sushi makes me hurl, and other seafood makes me gag, I hate the 'fishy-sea' smell. At the same time I love keeping fish and other aquatic creatures.

The turtle I keep is mainly bred in its native country for food. Bamboo shrimp also are mainly bred for food, and probably most of the species of inverts like crabs etc are all bred in their native countries for food. Random how a 'snack' in one country can cost us large amounts of money in another to keep as pets.

Yes I eat both types pf fish. My dad was a fisherman and we would have different types of fish different times of the year.

shell fish is my favorite though. (fresh caught, not the store bought stuff, GAG)

And sushi is quite good as well.

I don't like the taste of seafood. I do fish though and if I catch anything that is a keeper, I have a whole line of people waiting for it.
