Yes to both, although sardines in moderation. I _really_ like sashimi,
ceviche, and various forms of pickled herring. 

As to how much meat the English ate, I've read that the Scandinavians, 
around 1000 AD, distinguished between ordinary meals and meals with 
meat, which supports that diplomat's observation, allowing for the 
different era.
