Tuvalu sued Australia and the US for it.

What? I'm confused on that one. Confused

It sued those countries for emitting greenhouse gases.

To get back to the original topic, fish are considered sacred in gwakka. They are not food, and are never eaten.

Save Tuvalu!

One sentient, star-faring, mostly space-dwelling, technological conspecies in my conworlds (a community of worlds) is descended from ancestors who:
  • brachiated;
  • burrowed;
  • "flew" (with neutral buoyancy in atmosphere);
  • swam (with neutral buoyancy in liquid).
Some of them might have been considered "fish".

Are all these traits referring to the same ancestor? If so, how could they have neutral buoyancy in both water and air? Did their homeworld have a liquid atmosphere?

No, to direct ancestor-species at different times. Most could do two of these; during the segues from one to another occasionally one could do three of these, but probably not all equally well.
However, the adaptations to each ancestral kind of locomotion were never totally lost even when it became a rarety in the next descendant species.

They were able to generate hydrogen, a lighter-than-air gas, from their digestive and other metabolic processes; they'd save varying amounts of it in their swim-bladders.
If a swim-bladder contained just regular air, they could control their buoyancy in water to be neutral or positive or negative; if it wasn't neutral they could keep it close to neutral or not, as they wished (up to a point, of course).
Once they evolved the ability to generate more hydrogen and to select which gases and how much of them to store it in their swim-bladders, they were on the path to being able to make themselves over-all lighter than air at sea-level. As they got better at it, the altitudes to which they could adjust their buoyancy to neutral, got higher and higher. They had an ancestral ability to withstand high pressure in the depths of the oceans; they began to evolve the ability to also withstand the low pressures of the rarefied reaches of the high atmosphere.

Ah. Very intriguing, we should hear more of this!

In the C.N.N.I, fish are generally fried in butter by NOT-proffesional chefs, turned into yummy scrumptious gourmet meals by proffesional chefs, and they get their butts burnt off by inexperienced housewifes and teenagers off to college.

The "buq" people also eat fish, and it is a staple for most coastal villages. They fry them in fat and salt, or eat them raw.

Oh, and SAVE TUVALO!!!

I'd say conworlds without fish would not be able to understand the "Sushi Yucky" translation challenge elsewhere on this bboard.

BTW wouldn't several of the CNNI citizens make a point of eating fish every Friday?
And I don't know if fish counts as humble food or poor food, but if it does, wouldn't one meal a day during Ramadan have fish as the entree, or something?

Good point! Many of them (that is, the Christians), would eat fish often, especcially during lent. The other religions also have traditions involving fish.
