In the UK a "fish shop" can be one of two, usually mutually exclusive,
* A fishmonger, selling wet (i.e. raw) fish and seafood
* A Fish and Chip shop, selling cooked fast food
So we'd need to distinguish between these in the UK at least.
"Fishmonger" has a slight advantage in that it translates into French as
Poissionerie, German as Fischhändler, Italian as Pescivendolo, and so on.
Also, we have shop=butcher, not shop=meat.
