I'm plumping for haddock myself on account of some fishcakes I had earlier.
It seems to have come from nowhere.
(yet it clearly came from the sea)
this has really put me in my plaice.
on account of it coming in to take over from the endangered species you've mentioned above, and it's later renaming as Collin
Not strictly speaking a fish, but I like being a bit 'out there'
whale bandwagon last year.
It's all about the crustaceans now. They're well underground.
The early part of the decade belonged to the mullet, which had been laying low for much of the '90s. But then, the jellyfish appears to be taking over the world now - capsizing boats and destroying salmon farms and the like. Not really fish though, now I come to think of it. So fashion mullet it is.
no one can beat a penguin
bigger in the 90's, true, but I prefer it since they've been a bit harder to find.
Amazing, especially with a nice Italian-styled tomato sauce.
Less Than Hake
maybe the shark from jaws if it's still alive

The guppy (Poecilia reticulata), also known as the millionfish, it's one of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish species in the world.
Right, yes? Maybe?
In Tesco frozen value packs.
And neither have I.
Cod were going great guns at the beginning of the decade. Mainly due to their juicy, oily livers. I remember a lot of old people doing the twist at just the mere mention of cod, flexing their supple joints like it was 1958 all over again. Of course towards the end of the decade, what with the economic decline, goldfish became the real nugget. People would say "Exchange your goldfish for CASH!" or "WONGA!" (if they had learning difficulties). People wanted any kind of goldfish, broken, plated, even the really old ones that had turned bright silver. What a decade that was.
with a fish in it.
or should I say...
really was the buzz fish of the decade.
It was underground in the 90s but busted out worldwide in recent years.
I can only speak for the southern hemisphere, though.
Due to the bad press it received from my hero, the pizza worshipping Michaelangelo from the Teenage Mutant Hero/Ninja Turtles "AAANCHOVIES?!!? NO WAI DOOOD!!", I had never eaten one until the early 00's. Since, I have been a regular consumer. Between 2006 and 2008 there probably wasn't a week that went by where I didn't eat at least one meal that involved anchovies, often several a week.
The ultimate three topping create your own :
Anchovies, Jalapenos, Black Olives.
Har dee har. How about best piscatorial tunes? 'Weird Fishes' by Radiohead, por ejemplo
I mean, she's single handedly credited that fish with writing the songs that launched her career.
clearly this has been the year of the barbel, followed by the tench but I guess you guys just wouldn't understand.
Can I have that one?
but i've been enjoying it more and more with repeated visits. It gets my vote, and hope it goes from strength to strength in 2010
Red Snapper make a comeback last year. Seriously underrated.
