  1. A fishwife or fish fag[1] is a woman who sells fish.[2] Such women were notoriously loud and foul-mouthed as in the expression, To swear like a fishwife. One reason for their outspokenness is that their wares were highly perishable and so lost value if not sold quickly.[3]

    Now that I know what a "fish wife" is, I can see the aptness of the title.
