LOADING SARDINES FROM A WEIR TRAP INTO BOATS: NEW BRUNSWICK Though fish are not commonly regarded as meat, there is no characteristic difference between fish flesh and that of animals. Protein and water form the bulk of fish flesh, and, pound for pound, there is almost as much protein in fish meat as in beefsteak. Oily fish, such asShad, Herring, and Eel, are especially nutritious. Fish roe usually contains more protein than beef and some fat in addition.
