    What the fish.

    In the United the States, a study showed that 25% of the fish served in restaurants in New York were not what they were said to be on menu.

    lucky Chinese like to eat their fish in whole, not fillet, so they can't bluff us.

    Probably the fish and chip dishes. Fish fillet is cut up, covered in bread crumbs and deep fried. You do not know what fish it is.

    Doesn't need to be. When kids learn about a few fishes only from Biology lessons (or NatGeo TV: sharks, dolphins, whales etc) it's not difficult to bluff them with something in the shape of a fish, even if it's not crusted and deep fried.

    I heard the Golden Arch's fish fillet is from Burmese / Cambodian / Vietnamese bottom feeder catfishes fed with animal by-products and wastes along with a copious amount of antibiotics and "nutritional supplements".

    It's not a surprising info.

    Why do you think crabs and cockles taste so nice?

    many many many years ago, I went Pulau Ubin for camping, at one end of this island there is jetty and toilet at the end of jetty,

    I saw some Malay boys harvesting mussels at the jetty, they show me the mussels they found under the toilet is very fat and juicy, and they tell me they are very yummy too.

    it is true that molluscs and crustaceans love to eat sewage.

    that is why I always have my meesiam without hum.

    This is usually what we get when we order "Fish and Chip" in Singapore. They call this fish "dory" in the restaurants, sounds nice, like from the blue ocean.
