Q. What's the biggest mistake that people make when they buy fish or shellfish?

A. The biggest mistake is probably not buying at a specialty store. If you're not familiar with fish and your first buying experience is from a supermarket, you may be disappointed. Instead stick with a specialty store that has a skilled, knowledgeable staff and a good turnover so you can be sure their products are fresh. The other big mistake that I think people make is buying fish to freeze it. It's not the worst thing in the world to do, and some fish freeze better than others, but you do lose something in the freezing.

Q. Is there a recommended amount of fish per person or per serving?

A. We suggest 8 oz. per person for a medium adult portion. But there are some fish that are very rich, almost buttery, that we suggest a little less, perhaps 6 oz. per portion. These would include Chilean Sea Bass, salmon or sea scallops. Other fish that are lighter, like fillet of sole or anything white like halibut or cod -- those you can have 8 oz. portions.

Q. Other than buying from a quality fish monger like you, Dorian, when buying fish, what should a consumer look for?

A. A fish should have a clear, bright eye. A whole fish should be clean. There should be no residue or murky looking pasty surface on it. It should be firm in a whole fish stage. Also, if you want to ask to see the gills, they should be bright red. Nothing brown. And of course, the smell: it should be clean and fresh. No rotten or ammonia smell.

Q. Should we worry about mercury and other toxins in swordfish and tuna?

A. Over the years industrialization has caused more mercury to be in the air and in our waters. The big fish -- tuna, swordfish, and some say halibut -- tend to have more mercury. It's something to be concerned about in that I wouldn't tell you to eat tuna for all three meals, seven days a week, for the rest of your life. Just like someone wouldn't eat red meat every day because that would be a poor diet. Because variety and moderation are fine, if you have it occasionally, it's okay. But nowadays it's an occurrence we need to understand and be aware of. I don't expect it to go away.
