I love fish. I prefer it raw than cooked. I love sashimi. And sushi in general.

Not as much as I used to. I now live in an area that it is difficult to get "fresh" fish. When I say fresh, I am talking a few hours from the water at the outside. I was spoiled growing up in Michigan right on Lake Michigan and the fresh fish from there, and then by the coast in Maine. Now in northern Maine I can't stand the crap they have in the stores. When I can get it fresh I will have it a couple of times a week.

Fish is fablulous!
I find fairly fresh fish at the grocery story & I've never been disappointed with the quality, though I know that it was shipped here. I don't think great eating fish come from the high desert!!

Growing up in Louisiana & always living near water made me a great fisherwoman. I love to catch, skin, fillet & fry my own catfish...ummm..um.

So yes, I eat lots of fish. At least twice a week.

1-2 times weekly. We get fresh shrimp here, so that is always high priority, and I buy fresh salmon or catfish when it's on sale. Also King Crab when that's on sale.

I am going to turn into a tuna. I remember something about a comment along those lines and so far, no gills. I went camping last summer and took with me, 60 cans of tuna. It was all gone in a month and I didn't have any company - just me. If you think I must be sick of tuna now, guess again. I am restocking for next summer - but I keep having it during the winter. It's really hard for me to stay stocked up on tuna.

We eat salmon once a week, tilapia 2 times a week, and then of course, I eat tuna fish often. I always wondered why I like the water so much.

This is funny I stumbled across this post, I NEVER eat fish and have always wondered how in the world people like the stuff. I actually had a dream last night I was trying to eat it. Ironic, but really it's gross, even in my dream. I wish I liked it, it's so good for you.

Also, when I was in the USA fish was virtually non-existant in most of the supermarkets.
That would depend on how close to the ocean you were. When I was living in the Washington, DC area, even a poor person could afford a live crab every now and then, and some butter fish. Now that I live in Oklahoma the last 35 years, it's obviously cattle and beef country, and any fishing is done for sport, not for food. Can't buy striped bass and crappie at the grocery store, unfortunately. If you had gone to the south, though, you should have easily found catfish in the stores.

You have to realize the USA is very large, and even though your country, Spain isn't nearly as large, I'd wager that it has regional differences in the cuisine just as our country does. And I'd also wager that the people who live near the Pyrenees would complain that they couldn't find fish as easily as they could when they visit Catalan, unless they went fly-fishing for trout themselves!

Love fish-snapper, redfish, flounder, tilapia, catfish. Unfortunately since we moved from the Jersey shore to Minnesota we eat it less as there's nowhere to get good, fresh fish and seafood.
