Fish have no fishy smell when they are freshly caught. The tissue of fish contains a substance called trimethelyine..or something like that..and when it is exposed to the air , combined with amonia...and the tissue starts to decay...things start to get 'fishy'. A freshly caught fish does not smell of anything except the sea. The smell of decaying flesh of any sort is horrible..how about stinky chicken? There is a horrible disease..the name escapes me right now..but humans can sweat the smell of fish..imagine that !!! Fishy underarms !!

Mr.Ex that's not very nice. Actually, they’re not supposed to smell fishy. The meat of a fresh fish is almost odorless. Any smell it may have is probably the result of something it ate or the type of water it was in when caught. Fish take on that really fishy smell only when they’re dead and bacteria and enzymes go to work at breaking down the tissue. Fish come equipped with a compound called trimethylamine N-oxide. Fish scientists think they use this stuff kind of like antifreeze. It lowers the freezing point of their body fluids. And it’s that compound that makes fish smell like fish when they’re dead. You have some trimethylamine N-oxide in you, too. You get it from eating eggs, liver, soy products and fish, and for the most part that’s fine. However, about 1 percent of the population has a glitch in the genes that affect the way the body processes the stuff.

Why do pickled anything smell the way they do? Salty water! And I agree, Mr.X, that's just plain rude character.

If you can smell fish, turn around and walk out. Fish only smells when it starts to go off. Fresh fish is not smelly. Fresh fish has bright red gills and bright, plump eyes. I grew up and the Cape and always hear Vaalies say that they get fresher fish up here. Well, in 10 years I have yet to see a decent fresh fish in Gauteng.

I agree with Jaycee that fresh fish does not have that"fishy" smell. I believe the other (vrot) fish get their smell from the old decomposing fishermen who catch them.
