Que?[edit]

This sentence, under health hazards/biotoxins, "These fish always contain these poisons as a defense against predators; it is not present due to environmental circumstances." is confusing and self-contradictory. Besides, I think the fugu article says something quite different. Can someone correct this? --GoofyLittleWonder196 (talk) 23:37, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

banal sentence explaining that a cooked fish is still called fish[edit]

Cooked things are still called by their name be it fish, potato, crab or broccoli. It would be best to remove this banal sentence from the lead. Bhny (talk) 05:55, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

The fish doesn't have to be cooked, it merely has to be ready for eating. And the point is not "banal". Other meats are often not called by their name in English when they are prepared for eating. Did you read the section on terminology? --Epipelagic (talk) 06:05, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
OK, I merged terminology into the lead. I still think it is banal to say fish is called fish after (or before?) it is cooked, as if this is a surprise. It is better to say English does not distinguish between fish as an animal and the food prepared from it, as it does with pig versus pork or cow versus beef. Bhny (talk) 06:20, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
Well that's exactly what the article said from the outset. --Epipelagic (talk) 09:25, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
