I generally like shellfish better than fin fish - shrimp, scallops, mussels. For fin fish, I like tilapia, salmon and tuna. I had wahoo once and really liked it.

haven't met a fish I don't like. From early childhood I've loved clams and salmon. Recently I have been using grouper in a number of recipes with great results.

same here, I like all of them really, but I won`t eat Roe or Caviar and I`m not over keen if a fish has loads of pin bones in it.
So long and Thanks for all the Fish ;)

I love all kinds of fish, but my favorite salt water fish is grouper; favorite fresh water fish is bluegill, with walleye coming in a close second.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Like GotGarlic, I prefer other marine foods to fish but my favourite fishes are flathead Flathead (fish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), cobbler Conservation of Fish Species - Cobbler (Cnidoglanis macrocephalus), Department of Fisheries, Western Australia, Fish for the Future, tuna (as sashimi) and sardines. Quite partial to smoked fish of any sort too.

I prefer sweet delicate fish flesh over the stronger flavoured fishes.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I'm like Robo410...I've not met the fish/shellfish that I don't love...Some more than others, but I love them all.

Miss Connie...when you said Bluegills I had to smile. I could write a book on the impact that little fish (and some of his cousins) has had on my life! The stories I could tell....Then there is Sac-a-lait (crappie, white perch) and even large mouth bass.

Salt water favorites...Some are Red Snapper, Grouper, Speckled trout, Red Fish, and Sword Fish. I can't list them all...

No....I didn't forget Mississippi Pond Raised Channel Catfish!!!!

There is only one Quality worse than Hardness of Heart, and that is Softness of Head.

My favorites....

Raw - Tuna
Baked - Wahoo (prepare like tunafish salad)
Smoked - Wahoo
Fried - snapper
Tacos, encrusted, veracruzana, blackened, etc. - snapper or mahi mahi
Shellfish - Shrimp
Freshwater - walleye

I won't eat Marlin, won't even eat at a restaurant that serves it & I rarely eat Salmon, I prefer my fish fresh & I have yet to travel to Alaska.

My fish choices are generally budget driven... So I eat a LOT of tilapia and salmon.
Both are seasonally available fairly cheaply, so I stock up.
Otherwise, I am a Markdown fish buyer. If the expensive swordfish, for example, is marked down for quick sale, I will get it.

I like the Clown Fish.

They're pretty.

Dogs have owners ~ Cats have staff.
