fish food poisoning


Explanation:
Unfortunately, I know what this refers to. This is caused by eating fish that is infected by viruses, bacteria, or algae poisonous to the human body.
Cheerio,

seafood poisening


Explanation:
This is the common term in the US, probably because the most common source are clams and oysters rather than fish. I've experienced it three times: twice in a renowned seafood restaurant in Boston, once in the Pigalle. Somewhat to my surpris, never in any of the Pacific-Rim countries where I used to travel on bsiness.
