Marine anatomy, Costco style

While at Costco, I was made aware that someone, either me or someone in the fish packaging industry, is not aware of exactly what a ‘loin’ is, or how you can have one if you don’t have any legs, as fish don't.

Seeing this put me in mind of that old gag from the B.C. strips, where the clams would be walking around talking, and then someone would yell "Hey! Clams got legs!" I felt like yelling "Fish got loins!"

Fish got loins?

Why not? isn't that the part of the anatomy from which decendents spring? Says so in the bible, doesn't it. (Admittedly, my knowledge is second hand.)

Of course, if that what fish loins are, I'm not buying.

Great Icon!

I can't point to a Biblical verse which SPECIFICALLY says that fish don't have legs, but I believe that that is the prevailing opinion within scripture.
I always thought of loins as including the whole hip-pelvis area, which can be girded, rather than just the generative organs. I could be wrong, maybe it is a specialized fish term.
