How much fish do you eat?
OPINIONS Spain's fishing war with Canada has strained Britain's links with the EU
Sunday 02 April 1995
CHLOE, aged 8: Fish, yuck! I hate it. I once had a fish burger in McDonalds and it was gross, all this horrible watery stuff came dripping out.
DAVID FISHBURN, salesman: I can cope with the ones that come in big meaty chunks, but small ones are gruesome - especially shellfish. I won't eat anything that doesn't have a skeleton.
EDWARD ORIANO, Spanish restaurateur: I eat all fish except skate. Skate lives in harbours feeding off gunge and it tastes of what it eats.
LUCY FISHER, secretary: I hardly touch it. I don't mind fish pie, where it's all nicely disguised in cheesy sauce. Skate is revolting - all those jelly bones in it are vile - and so's whitebait, when you scrunch up their little heads.
SYLVIA TROUT, property consultant: In the summer I prefer it to meat, which is so greasy. My favourite fish is halibut because it's a deep sea fish and it's not contaminated by pollutants; and bass, which I usually steam with ginger.
JOHN HANCOCK, Grimsby trawlerman: I eat fish three times a week. There's no fish I don't like. My favourites are haddock, battered or boiled, monk fish in wine, and sole, grilled. I'm on the Canadian side in this fish war.
CLIVE SMITH, fishmonger: I have it a couple of times a week. My favourites are fried cod and baked salmon. I don't like boney fish - herring is the worst - I can't be bothered to take the bones out.
CHARLIE BRYAN, student: None at all. I just hate the smell and the taste, though I went through a fish finger phase when I was a child.
FLIPPER, London Zoo penguin: I eat sprats and nothing else - usually about 40 a day, except when I'm moulting.
