As far as canned fish... health issues aside...cats tend to get a STRONG liking to fish, and then it is VERY difficult to get them off of it. 
Fish was a last resort... for us.

You especially can't feed cats raw fish because it risks thiamine deficiency:

Cats usually love fish, but they should either avoid it or only eat it in small amounts. Fish is not a natural food for cats and cat owners should know that.  Is fish harmful to cats?  Raw fish is a risk and cats may be in danger of developing thiamine deficiency.

If this was the case, your cat could experience loss of appetite, seizures, and also some gastrointestinal problems. A regular consumption of raw fish in your cat’s diet may also lead to death. You should avoid feeding your cat predatory fish, such as salmon, as this fish may contain a high level of heavy metals and other toxins.

Tilefish, mackerel, and shark are the worst contaminated, so you should not use them in your cat’s diet.  There are also other reasons why cats should not eat fish. Most cats are sensitive or even allergic to fish. Fish-based foods are usually high in histamine, a protein which may lead to allergic reactions.

It is Fancy Fest classic pate and medley, Blue Buffalo kibbles mixed in for Izzi. We tried who knows how many wet foods and that is what they accepted. No more kibble for the aunties for about a year now. I keep on trying tiny portions of fresh cooked chicken but with mixed result. SO wants to move to Blue Buffalo salmon and will pick some up. There are about ten cases of food in the girls' pantry.



The reason Lola said very little or no fish is because you risk poisons that come from a lot of fish.

Salmon is a popular cat food ingredient, but today nearly all of it comes from factory-farmed fish. These unfortunate animals are kept by the thousands in overcrowded net pens—essentially, fish feedlots—in polluted coastal waters. They’re injected and fed antibiotics to keep them alive in the face of rampant disease; and fed dyes to make their flesh “salmon colored”—otherwise it would be gray. Common water pollutants such as PCBs, pesticides, and other chemicals are present in farmed salmon at 10 times the amount found in wild fish. These contaminants will also be present in any product made with farmed fish, including cat and dog food.
