1st thought is Tuna,so that has to be wrong I am thinking the Bait,the mulletis is eaten all around the world,even Ocean county.If all flatfish where the same,they would add up,but their are soo many species.Mullet is my answer

O.K. I may be off the wall here but the world is a big place so a paradigm shift is called for. How about catfish and Talapia(sp)?

Ah, nothing like a little trivia on a cold winter morning. Let's see.
Squid and carp if you are counting non true fishes.
If not, carp. Maybe tilapia.

#2 Would probably be Tuna

I would be surprised if it were not a cold water fish. I would venture a guess of maybe Pollock...

In the world...big place...many fishes....lessee...
I'd have to go with dogfish and tuna.
(Now I'm gonna do a lil research later when I get a chance...maybe I can sneak an edit on this post and no one will be the wiser! )

I agree .... Carp....or carp family of fish ie buffalo, drum (freshwater) etc.....
Question is this "the most eaten fish" in pounds consumed or demand? Also do crustaceans qualify?

Well, didn't see the show but I would have to agree with prefessa with the Tuna, I thought it would be the #1 but I'll put that second, and let's go with Haddock for the first choice. I have a hunch that the Cod is up there though.
