"Anyways, I've been reading and found that the problem with fish is that many species contain Thiaminase, a substance which breaks apart Vitamin B1 (or was that B11?), which will cause "malnutrition"... a very bad kind of malnutrition."

Not whoring my thread, im just lazy so i cut n paste from: Feeding MAINLY raw (thawed) fish?

those fish mentioned have been SPECIFICALLY mentioned to contain confirmed amounts of THIAMINASE. Even WE shouldn't eat them on a regular basis:
- Bream
- Crappie
- Trout
- Some Salmon
- Some Catfish
- Mullet
- Some Sardines
- Some Mackerel
- Capelin
- Some Tuna
- Smelt
- Anchovies
- etc

Well, there's quite a number of them that contain thiaminase. i myself am still trawling the net for more info as of now and learning.

Tilapia contains NO thiaminase, BUT the O6 levels are reported to be bad. I'm starting to look at Greater Amberjacks now.

I feed whiting (cod like) from They get it fresh caught from the Pacific, can't imagine a better source. can someone confirm this is also called pollock?

5 LB. bag of whole Pacific Whiting. No heads. Eviscerated and frozen. Pacific Whiting is harvested from the cold waters of the North Pacific Ocean. Procured from fishermen & processed in an owner-operaterated HACCP approved plant on the North American west coast. Wild and Sustainability harvested. Product of the US. Flash frozen to assure freshness. All natural, no preservatives or additives.
Whiting is a non-oily fish similar to cod. Super low fat.
