    I prefer fresh water fish because it's sweet and delicate but it's personal taste I think

    I would say fresh water. I however am biased because I have a tilapia farm. I tend to soak the tilapia fillets in a little salt water for 30 minutes before preparing.
    We produce a very tasty fish that doesn't taste too fishy.

    I probably prefer saltwater fish, but enjoy freshwater as well.  My favorite freshwater fish is probably trout, but I stay away from it because it has too many bones.  All and all you can't go wrong with catfish; I love catfish.  Saltwater - probably King Fish, but swordfish is close; I also love halibut as well.

    Growing up in Florida, I'm partial to Salt Water Fish. Grouper, Snapper, Mahi Mahi.
    One of my favorite recipes is "Snapper Veracruz" -- you basically saute onions, green pepper, capers, tomatoes, olives, in some white wine and when the onions are about 3/4 done you lay the snapper on top.
    I think it's amazing that there are people up in the northeast that don't eat fish at all. Growing up in South Florida, I probably ate as much fish as chicken or beef.
    FYI - I do love trout, baked with some kind of breadcrumb crust, glass of white wine, .......hungry, gonna go eat something now.......

    Salt water fish often tends to be radio active nowadays. I therefore recommend local, fresh water fish as the sensible choice. Of course, if your abode lies in a region of high radio activity, it makes little difference what you choose to eat.

    I think fresh water is better than salt water to cook fish.

    Depends on how you want to cook it. Fresh water fish is softer and more crumbly so I mainly pan fry it or roast it in the oven, otherwise it tends to break apart. If you want to grill it, then use a firm salt water fish. I personally prefer salt water fish as it is more tasty and usually less bony. My favourite is grilled salmon steak

    I don't much care for fish, but when i do eat it i tend to like saltwater fish such as swordfish and flounder.

    I've become a saltwater fish fanatic. Can't explain it at all, but grouper, snapper, tuna, dolphin, swordfish, redfish, speckled trout and flounder all get my nod over most freshwater fish. Don't get me wrong, tho. I also LOVE crappies, perch and bluegills.

    Of course, wild turkey is my overall favorite.
