If you are buying fillets from a reputable fish market, they will have removed the most prominent of the bones. The fish section at the grocery store, not so much. However, if you get yourself a pair if tweezers that you don't use for anything else, you can remove those bones yourself before you cook the fish. Place the fillet on a flat surface (like a clean chopping board) and run your fingers over the top of the fillet. Most bones will protrude from the top of the fish and you can grasp them with the tweezers and pull them out. It's really very easy to do.
Otherwise, you can eat shrimp, scallops, and other shellfish whose "bones" are removed either before you get them, or the shells are so obvious as to be super-easy to remove.
