I think as well that even properly prepared Fugu has trace amounts of toxins in it.  Interestingly I was just looking up some more info on it and according to some articles, apparently the Japanese can now raise toxin-free pufferfish but due to lingering fears the liver is still illegal in most places.

I for one am not looking for problems or a law suit. I will not serve it nor even give it to my cats.

Your list is a little misleading due to brevity. Some of the fish on it, fall into the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch List best choice category; depending upon method, country, and location. A more concise list can be found here http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr/cr_seafoodwatch/sfw_recommendations.aspx?c=ln

My list was not meant to be an end all list of fish that should be avoided, it was meant to say get off your high horse.  MOST fish that are eaten and overlooked EVERY DAY in establishments are over fished and as a "GOOD STEWARD" of the ocean you shouldnt serve them.  Here is the Green Peace list as well as the E Nature list.
