HI There, 

 

I am wondering where I can find the definition of the term Fish. 

 

I know Meat includes all edible parts including blood etc. 

 

Is there a publication with these definitions?

 

Is Skin and Bones included in the term Fish? 

 

What is your opinion? 

 

Many thanks!

It might be useful if you could provide a little context as to the origin of the question - is this in terms of biology, allergen status, ingredient listing, something else altogether?

From an allergenic perspective, all parts of the fish can cause a reaction in sensitive people.

 

The place to go for questions about allergens is FARRP:

(who say that parvalbumin is usually the culprit.)

The  Codex Alimentarius has a definition. There might be more answers to your questions in it too.

(link above, p.5) Fish Any of the cold-blooded (ectothermic) aquatic vertebrates. Amphibians and aquatic reptiles are not included.
