the way to judge a fish is by the eyes- if the eyes are clear it is a good fish, if the eyes are cloudy it is bad.
obviously this rule of thumb will not work for a fillet and you will have to follow what your snout tells you- if it smells raunchy don't by it.
it is an often told tale told to those who have pondered on how to stop fish from smelling- the general reply from those in the know is to simply "cut its nose off".
If the fish is fresh, it shouldn't smell fishy (it shouldn't really smell at all, or at the very least smell like the ocean). When I'm at the fresh fish counter, I always ask to smell the fish first and pass on anything that smells too fishy. Just buy enough for what you can eat that day.
Umm if it smells fishy then no that means it is bad..i would just look for one that looks alright and smells alright and if there aren't any of those i would never go back there.
Define fishy.lol. Fish should smell like fish, but it shouldn't smell bad or anything. But generally at a fish market things do smell more fishy than usual.
True, and good answer, in the supermarkets you don't pick up on the fish smell, but at a real fish market, you will get a fishier smell. More than usual.
Yes its legit because I have heard that when u buy fish if its fresh it shudnt smell fishy
Ummn please tell me this isn't a legit question? 'Cause I had to laugh!

Don't eat the smelly fish.
