conundrum of the moment

so when *did* fish become boneless? i've always eaten fish like an orca
-- preferring it to any kind of meat (not for health reasons, purely for

i'm sitting here at the "fish market" and just got a bone in my salmon.
as a kid, you expected bones in fish -- in fact, it was part of the
fun/puzzle of eating them ... and i realized as i spun the piece of
milky calcium in my hand, i can't remember the last time i had a bone in
a piece of fish that wasn't something i pulled out of a rocky mountain
beaver dam myself.

so what the hell happened?

At first I was all "???" — then I remembered that not everyone lives in the boonies. I've even managed to find a bone or two in canned tuna, so I'm always careful.

But you're right, de-boning the fish yourself can be part of the fun.

... Fish have bones?

;) Kidding.

I don't normally eat fish -- I admit, I am a carnivore -- but I do be careful of the bones. I like crabs and lobster more though. I find them easier to eat.. and there's is less worry of finding a bone in the flesh.
