Not all fishcakes are prepared using breadcrumbs or batter on the outside. Also, the article had no mention of salted fish being used in their preparation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:22, 7 February 2009 (UTC)


in asia, fishcake is quite a different food altogether (as compared to the one described in this article) Chensiyuan 09:42, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

What are fishcakes like in Asia? Tell us, then we can point out the difference in the article. Nietzsche 2 (talk) 22:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

If I may, there seems to have been created on Wikipedia a strong regional delineation between Asian lumps of fish (which may be called fish balls) and every other kind of lump of fish (which must be assigned to the only other remaining lump of fish related article, fishcake). I don't really see the point, but I don't exactly know how to make a unifying multicultural fish-cake-ball article (is there a name for a ball of fish meat that is non regional specific?), and I don't want to upset the patriotic folks over on Talk:Fish_ball. cheers Marcipangris (talk) 02:58, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Moo moo cow?[edit]

This article needs work. LET'S GET TO IT, BATMAN! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:49, 21 September 2007 (UTC)


Would bacalaítos be considered fish cakes?

Yup, seems like the real thing so added it to the list. - Takeaway (talk) 10:10, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Worldwide view[edit]

The text, as it is now, is very much written from a British perspective. Just having non-British examples in the list below is not enough. - Takeaway (talk) 21:58, 22 June 2012 (UTC)


Brizzro (talk) 05:33, 28 July 2017 (UTC) This Article is covering the topic with very limited perspective. Amook is not from England, maybe fish and chips,but not Amook / Fish cake. Amook

  1. REDIRECT Amook/ Fish cake is originated from Japan and Korea. Heavier focus on those two countries regarding Amook is required in this article.

Similar to a croquette?[edit]

This article begins by saying that a fishcake is similar to a croquette. I would have thought it more accurate to say it is similar to a fish finger, except for the fact that fishcakes are normally round and fish fingers are normally rectangular. Vorbee (talk) 17:51, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
