    Question What is the meaning of the word REFISH?


    Please, tell me if it is OK or NOT to have a brand name REFISH of the fish product. I am confused, because the prefix RE- means something remade, reproduced. Will not it be unpeasant to eat fish with the brand ReFish? I urgently need the oppinion of native English speaker or better from linguist.Thank you!

    'remade, reproduced'... or, in the field of food, reconstituted. It doesn't sound like a good brand name to me.

    Go fishing again in the same place. No no no, just kidding, but maybe now it will become such a new word. I have never heard of this word, which doesn't mean much. Please show a sentence. Maybe it was meant to be refresh.

    My apologies Alvtina because i asked you to show a sentence. If fact I did not even notice your first post because there is a google ad jammed between post 1 and post 2.

    You can call a brand whatever you want, for example "sdlkfj##@%%$$&&referfish". I wouldn't spend my hard earned money on a Refish product.

    ReeFish would be better, but if your fish aren't caught on a reef it might be false advertising.

    I think calling ReFish a bad name is a bunch of cods, but I'm not going to carp about it. If you're floundering for a name, perhaps you could post again.

    By the way, what is the actual product?

    Raymott is a shark! (very good at what he does). But it all sounds pretty fishy to me, I think i better head to the WC bring a brown trout to life.

    Thanks for Your good advices and oppinion! Now I confident that the brand ReFish is not good..., but the idea of ReeFish is just great!!! Actually the product is Dry Salmon Fillet Slices (Snacks).
