I'd like to know about that too.  We can only get frozen, previously frozen, or canned fish here.

If you can find any that wasn't flash frozen, that would be fine.  Shocking a protein by flash freezing or canning causes the formation of polyamines.  Same goes for canned fish.  If you can find any that wasn't flash frozen, that would be fine.  I think most of it is flash frozen, however.  I did plunk down a large chunk of change for some fresh wild salmon, and it was definitely worth it...it tastes so much better, nothing was wasted from that purchase!

I'm in the same boat, it's very hard to find fresh fish here.  You can eat some beneficials like dark-pigmented berries or walnuts or green tea for dessert to negate some of the effects of the polyamines that are formed when proteins are flash-frozen.  Same goes for canned fish.  

*I'm just going off memory here, so correct me if I'm confusing polyamines with polyacrylamides or something!

I'd like to know about frozen fish too. I usually buy lots of fresh fish, but then freeze them myself so that I can eat them later. Curious

From Hiedi's blog:
Quoted Text
We prefer that everyone use fresh fish whenever possible, but canned fish is OK for those times you can't find fresh fish.


Also look at this: Link

Fresh is clearly best, canned is an acceptable substitute when fresh is unavailable.

Freezing fresh fish in your freezer is okay. Avoid refreezing though.

Yes, freezing in a regular home freezer is fine, it's flash freezing that causes problems.  

Just make sure it wasn't previously frozen before you bought it.
