Walleye hands down.

Ono. Seriously, wahoo is amazing. There's a reason that the Hawaiians use ono to mean 'good to eat.' Looks very similar to mackerel in the water, but the flesh is nowhere near oily, it turns snow white when it cooks, and has a texture that is like a flaky scallop, only with a naturally buttery texture and flavor. Fry it. Sear it. Grill it. Turn it into seviche or poke, or as sushi. It doesn't matter what you do with it, it's just amazingly delicious. It will stand up to soy and chiles, it is fine with a squoze of lemon or lime and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I have yet to find a way to prepare ono that wasn't delicious.

Catfish, but since I can no longer eat fried cornmeal, I so rarely get to have it. The only fish I don't like is halibut.

Great question.  I like smoked salmon for breakfast and on Caesar salad (trust me on this one).  I like grouper as an entree.   I like mahi in my fish tacos.  I like swordfish best on the grill.  I like walleye that I hauled out of a Minnesota lake and fried served with a cold beer on a deck overlooking the lake.

Why have one?

Fried catfish, jerked marlin, grilled Mahi Mahi, seared tuna, salmon sushi.

Give me all the fishes!

I always liked flying fish the best, because they could fly.

Catfish and crappie are excellent for a fish fry.

Salmon

/ Preferably smoked
// Swordfish would most-likely be second on my list, but I recognise it may be as high as it is on my list 'cos of the company I've been in - and the amount of sake I've imbibed - on the occasions I've eaten it

For eating, salmon. For looking at, brook trout

Trout, sea bass, catfish as entrees at restaurants. Canned sardines with mustard and hot sauce as a snack on the regular.

I like other fish, those are just my faves.

Plecostomus (as a pet) by far:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyposto​m​us_plecostomus

My wife and I kept a fish tank years ago with basic tetras, and one big honking (for our tank anyway) pleco called Boris.  We named him that because he was always lurking and watching from under ledges in the tank decorations, and it felt very spy-v-spy sometimes.

Plecos eat algae mostly, but if you weigh down some zucchini so that they can get to it they'll go absolutely nuts for it.  Boris figured out that I was the one who would feed him his favorite snack, because Plecos pay attention to what's going on outside the tank, and would follow me around if I was walking or sitting near the tank and kind of watch me, cat like.

"Well?  You going to feed me?  Got one of those big snacks?"

It was great, he had a lot of personality.

I keep an aquarium, and I have fish older than my youngest child (18 years old). However, my favorite is fish is a fairly large eel that is only about 7 years old but he has a personality, and also gets very agitated if I do not feed him at the correct time. I like fish tanks as pets because if any of the creatures pass, meh, wonder what I can put in there to replace them.

Catfish. Fried or blackened.

Tilapia is a poor substitute. I remember when it was cheap, too.

ReluctantLondon: Swordfish would most-likely be second on my list,


IIRC, Anthony Bourdain said the one fish you will never see a chef eat is swordfish due the huge parasitic worms that are very commonly found in that fish.

To eat or just in general?

Favorite to eat is Swordfish. 
Favorite fish in general Hammerhead Shark, I guess?

tilapia isn't food.

the idiots who glommed onto the tri-tip (also not food) craze moved onto tilapia ostensibly because they had too much money and figured everyone else did too.

It depends so much on the overall dish I'm craving.

For rich flavor that just celebrates the fish, sea bass.

Catfish for Cajun dishes.

Trout and salmon for quick pan-frying at home.

For curries, any sturdy whitefish will do: mahi mahi, sablefish, albacore, carp, etc.

But never goddamned tilapia. fark tilapia.

Well sure, there usually aren't worms longer than the fish they are in.  That seems obvious.

I like swordfish, but haven't had any in over a decade. Didn't know about the worms; I avoid it because of the outrageous mercury content.

I also really liked shark back in the 90s when it was legal in the states. Almost has that alligator texture, and is a versatile meat in a lot of dishes. Generally good flavor, too.

It depends entirely on the situation. If we're limiting it to food, it depends entirely on what is being made.

Probably chilean sea bass. But I'm also on a gravlax kick right now. Plus I love fresh grouper. And trout. And walleye. And... well, shiat.

Now I want a Bake and Shark sandwich!

I actually have a Trinidad y Tobago restaurant not too far from me but they stopped carrying the item due to high shark prices from the local fisherman.

Grouper. In particular, the 'Buffalo' style grouper from Frenchy's Clearwater Beach.

Unbelievable.

About 30 years ago, I had the opportunity to go moose hunting in Alaska. We rented some canoes and paddled down a river... our destination campsite was a 2-day journey (Alaska is really BIG). On the way one of the guys caught a silver (Coho) salmon. Soon after he caught it and cleaned it he put it in a couple of Ziploc bags with a cut up Vidalia onion and some Snappy Toms bloody Mary mix.
Grilled up and out in the middle of bum Fark Alaska, was the best tasting fish I have ever eaten.
No moose was hurt as a result of this trip.
