I might be getting ahead of myself, but isn't "Dia tidak bisa memakan" a better way to say this? What is the difference?

If you have a fish allergy, and want to say you can't eat fish: "Saya tidak bisa makan ikan"?

Yes, that's correct.
If you want to say "I am not allowed to eat fish" ==> "Saya tidak boleh makan ikan"
