Too much fried fish may contribute to the high rate of stroke in America's "stroke belt," according to a new study.
The results showed that people living in the stroke belt — including residents of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana — were about 30 percent more likely to eat two or more servings of fried fish every week than those living in the rest of the country, the researchers said.

Sounds like it is more a southern thing than a fish thing.
This also goes towards the saying, there are nuggets of truth to all stereotypes.

I have a home in coastal SC and have always viewed folk who eat seafood as "sickly" due to bacteria that is in the ocean. Yet all of these coastal towns spout all of their vacation resort info to the rest of the country. If they only knew how much bacteria and other crap they were swimming and wading in, they'd be better off staying at home.

Even the non fried stuff like black eyed peas or okra had a lot grease or lard.

I do enjoy fish though, especially raw salmon like they sell at sushi bars. If you like fish and have never tried raw salmon, TRY IT!! It's kind of sweet, and delicious.

Here is the thing though... in the south, we eat a LOT of fried food... Fish is only the tip of the iceberg...
Fried potatoes... Fried green tomatoes... Fried snicker bars for goodness sakes!
