Adverse reactions to seafood and particularly fish are frequently encountered worldwide, including in Southern Africa. We present a case study of what is typically experienced in the domestic and clinical setting and describe the most frequent causes. This article gives a holistic outlook on adverse reactions to fish, other than allergy to fish, from a South African perspective. The review includes infection by and allergy to Anisakis, 'iodine allergy', histamine sensitivity, unabsorbable wax esters, ciguatera poisoning, heavy metal toxicity and bacterial contamination.
