I could never name something and then eat it. But if we stay on a business like relationship then yes it's fine.

I cant stand fish, my dad used to go sea fishing a lot and then bring them home and fillet them in the kitchen - turned my stomach
I now cannot stand the smell around harbours when the boats come in either

I actually remember the professor for my aquaculture class specifically saying "don't get attached to these fish because you will be slaughtering them." Ever since that day I have basically compartmentalized my mind when dealing with fish. I have my pet fish, my work fish, and my food fish. I don't get attached to the fish I work with or handle at work. Not naming them is a great way to do that.

I love eating fish, I eat sushi, love salmon, trout, ahi tuna, and opah when it's available. Opah is awesome because it has less mercury then most predator fish.

For me, it depends. I don't like some fish due to the bones, but if a fillet of fish is placed in front of me, usually I will like it. However, ever since I came to Japan, I have been a little squeamish about fish. Not only do they buy the fish whole here, but they often serve it whole as well. Sorry, but I don't like to eat anything that can stare at me!
