The paper reflects on fish as cuisine, medicine and commercial good following a 2010 travelogue by Samanth Subramanian. It argues how the peripheral socio-cultural space has evidently a long historical legacy despite the technological changes in the country creating a space on its own. It highlights slow food of the coastal areas as opposed to globalised consumerist consumptions of the metros. Globalisation has changed food cultures of India in addition to making resources available at all times irrespective of the specific seasonal bearings.
