I'm confused why "Fish is always healthy" is listed as correct. In English, saying "fish is, in principle, healthy," would be followed by a rebuttal such as, "except that it now contains mercury." It certainly is NOT how you would say that fish is always healthy.

It's the same in German.

I typed "Fish is basically healthy" which was accepted.

I typed "Fish is on principal healthy" and wondered how it could possibly be wrong. :P So much studying German I forget my English!
