According to the Frietmuseum, fries were born in the 1700s. Belgians would catch small fish, fry them and eat them whole but during a severe winter the rivers froze so they cut and fried small fish-shaped potatoes instead.

So, the first chips, were fish. Perhaps I should go to Bruges to check?

I've rarely heard of a better reason for going to Bruge. Could you bring me back a trappist beer?

I think the might be mileage in the food show for chips originally being substitute fish. Needs a snappy question......

Eating fish heads can make you hallucinate, it is especially prevalent in Sea Bream and mullet. The scientific term is ichthyoallyeinotoxism and it is down to a compound called indole, which is present in the plankton and algae it eats.

Briton Zyg Gregorek, male, 65, is being hailed as the world's greatest fisherman after being the first person in history to have caught all 27 species in the three so-called "royal slams" set by the International Game Fish Association.

That includes nine species of shark, ten billfish and eight tuna.
