Yes. The flesh of a fish is a protein and is meat.

The whole debate is due to the literal definition of meat. You can use a general definition from a dictionary, the criteria used for the food pyramid, a religious definition, or a scientific assessment. The reason a debate even exists is because people use different definitions.

Some within the Catholic religion follow a latin translation for definition. This specifically excludes fish, seafood, and insects from the definition. Other translate the definition of "meat" into "RED MEAT".

There is no right or wrong. That fish flesh is protein is not arguable, fish is higher in proteins than red meat.
