Fish cookbook that has photographs and Asian fish?

We want to be great at fish and seafood dishes. The last question was on UK cookbooks, and the US fish books don't match the fish we have available in Singapore - pomfret and snakehead for example. I'd prefer a cookbook with lots of photographs that focuses on skills rather than specific recipes. An iPad app would be fine too.

should I eat it: self-propelling anchovy paste

I just opened a brand-new tube of anchovy paste to make salad dressing, and when I punctured the seal on the tube, it started to spout anchovy paste, as if the whole thing had been under pressure. It smells and looks fine, but emerged with surprising and alarming velocity. [more inside]

Name these fish (please)?

For a science report, my son intends to write about the fish in his (freshwater) acquarium. Only, he doesn't remember their scientific names. Help him out? I'll list them by the nicknames he uses (translated from the Italian): Hatchet, Bee, Rope, Glass, Cleaner (underbelly), Leopard, Needle, Black Cat. Thanks!

Fish oil - or snake oil?

Recently I was talking to someone about health related issues and she mentioned that she took fish oil ending with the broad statement that it helps with about everything. I have read over the years about how fish oil helps with menopause (which I'm beginning) and ADHD (which I have) and just about every kind of condition known. I saw a previous mefi about the inefficacy for fish oil on depression but wondered how it relates to other conditions. Googling shows all sorts of results, both positive and negative and as I am not medically inclined I'm wondering if there is any benefit to it or is better to steer clear? Anecdotal evidence too please.

recentish poem about thinking and dead fish?

I remember reading or hearing a contemporary poem that had a line about looking over silver glittery fish at a market, and thinking that they were all identical. The poem was intellectual rather than emotional or visual. A comparison was made to how humans are individuals, but fish (and by extension, categorical things) are just examples of an idea. This was the kind of thing I might have come across through NPR or the New Yorker - not obscure or anything. [more inside]

Making the most of frozen salmon

I just ordered some wild Alaskan salmon online, partially in hopes of being able to prepare sushi for myself at home. But the fish feels a little spongy when I eat it raw after defrosting it. Is this because of how long it's been frozen? Is there any way to revitalize fish that has been frozen for a period of months? [more inside]

Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for a sushi first-timer?

NYC-foodie-filter: A friend of mine wants to try sushi for the very first time. The game plan is to order a couple of pieces as an appetizer and either proceed to a full entree if she enjoys it or bail and order something different if it turns out that raw fish is not to her liking. Can anyone recommend a Japanese restaurant with equally strong sushi and non-sushi menus for this culinary adventure? I'd prefer a place in Manhattan or Queens, easily accessible from Midtown Manhattan and reasonably priced. Not too fancy. [more inside]

Help me find preserved fish with clear tissue and stained skeletons

I'm looking for a site or gallery of preserved fish/vertebrate specimens where the tissue was stained transparent but the skeletons were stained all sorts of exciting colors. I want to say the source was a Japanese website, and it was passed around the internet relatively recently. I can't recall if I found it on MeFi or on Google Reader, but it was somewhat popular. Help me out hive mind.
