A shop selling fish and or seafood. There are currently at least two tags for such shops in use. A voting process has shown that shop=seafood was preferred in 2010 by the participants for shops selling seafood, although the vote for this tag was rejected. (See the discussion and the voting.) This tag (shop=fishmonger) is still quite heavily used but shop=seafood is now more common - see Taginfo comparison.
