Fish and chips may get all the attention in the UK, but for a true taste of British history, head to one of London’s few remaining traditional ‘pie and mash’ shops. Here you can sample the dish working class Londoners have been dining on for hundreds of years: cold jellied eels, served alongside meat pie and mashed potatoes. The Thames once teemed with masses of slippery eels, which became a staple for those who couldn’t afford meat. Today, a handful of century-old East End shops still serve eels – chopped and set in their own jelly with a dash of chilli vinegar – to nostalgic locals and curious visitors.

For the seafood specialist: Victorian era M Manze is a classic spot, with antique tile walls and a chalkboard menu.

The weekend fish fry is one of the quintessential Bahamian experiences. Come Friday afternoons, vendors set up in parks or vacant lots, and by evening the whole place is alive with the smell of frying oil and the beats of goombay music. Try the ‘cracked conch’ – chunks of chewy tropical marine mollusc battered and fried a deep golden brown; conch salad, a piquant mix of marinated conch, tomatoes and onions; and all manner of crispy fish fritters. Wash it down with a local Kalik beer or a ‘sky juice’ – gin with coconut water and a glug of sweet condensed milk. Just don’t leave before the dancing starts!

For the seafood specialist: The Smith’s Point fish fry in Freeport is a favorite with both locals and tourists.
Smile at whatever happens.

Top tips for enjoying your seafood sustainably:

Look for products with MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) and ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) certifications.
Opt for produce caught using pole-and-line or handline methods.

If in doubt, ask the seller. A top-quality vendor should be able to provide information about the origins of the seafood and how it was caught.

Eating locally sourced fish reduces the carbon footprint from export/import.

If you’re concerned about which fish to eat and which to avoid, the Marine Conservation Society’s ‘Good Fish Guide’ is an excellent resource.

In particular, it is advised to avoid eating yellow and bluefin tuna, as well as Atlantic cod, shark and orange roughy.

Clams, mussels and oysters grown on a rope are excellent options for seafood fans, as they actually help to clean the oceans by removing harmful chemical elements like carbon, phosphorus and nitrogen.

...and all that plus the heavy metals like Lead & Mercury they filter out as well. Bravo!!!

Pity however they do accumulate all that within their meat/ body fat and too much from the wrong area could cause serious health problems to the consumer.

Like just this month, there is a food warning out for clams in the Fujian Province coastal region because of a "Red Tide" red algae bloom, that poises all kind of bivalves regardless of at what depth they are farmed or harvested.
Twentyfive percent out of nothing is still nothing!
