Meh?

Very interesting... thanks!
My helpers (from Oaxaca mostly) have schooled me on the living/ cooked explanation. Maybe they didn't know?

David K. had it right at the beginning: pez is the living fish and pecado is the caught and served fish. This is standard in Mexico and all the Central and South American countries I've visited. Of course, there are sometimes regionalisms. And it's important that the native speaker be reasonably well educated.

If asking a waiter in a restaurant, the question always is "¿Cual clase de pecado hay?" Frequently the answer is simply, "Pescado blanco." But it can be "pez espada" because this is the name of the living fish. Or it can be huachinango, cabrilla, or lenguado because these are the names of the living fish.

An small correction:

'pescador' (catches fish) fisher man

"Pescadero" a person who sell fish

"Pescaderia" Seafood market.

So in the case of a fisherman, selling fish from his boat, would that be a pescadoreroia?

Just kidding! I was reading a Mexican news article that had been auto translated to English, and it came up with "Fish Monger" for the community of Pescadero. La Paz was just called "Peace".

I would like to extend a second welcome to the forum!

"Fish Monger" just doesn't have the same musical quality as "Pescadero", which is also why I like saying "zanahoria" much more than I do eating carrots.
