That taste nasty

From Star Trek (original series) to this evening, I have a burning food prep question?

I have vivid memory of watching Star trek, the original series, while eating Mrs. Pauls fish sticks and drinking Welchs grape juice with my sister and father. My sister and I nearly regurgitated in response to the combination of the fish sticks and the grape juice, it was clearly some sort of reaction and it was awful, in your mouth.
I have mentioned this people for the last 45 years from time to time , and no one has ever said, "Oh yeah, that happens because..." So I kinda gave up and stored it as a misbegotten memory of some sort.
That was until tonight when I was eating the dinner I had just prepared.
Trader Joes frozen Talapia
Baked with salt and pepper until just done
topped with a pan sauce of: chicken stock, white wine, lemon juice, sugar, and a little potato starch after reduction.
The final product did not make me gag, but it was pretty bad. My wife chalked it off as bad fish, but all I could think of was that night so many years ago, there was something about the fishiness taste, it seemed similar to my well worn memory.
I cook a lot and I have never heard of anything like this, what happened then and now?
