Regional, and perhaps influenced by taboos and taxonomies prevalently observed in those regions by Jews and Roman Catholics?

>This may be regional. I went to a supermarket (non-chain) that I'd never been to before yesterday. The meat/butcher counter was across the store from the fish counter which was right next to the deli counter (and seemed to share personnel with it). This is consistent with the indie market near where my sister lives (also in Connecticut) as well as with the practice in the two chain supermarkets I regularly shop in.
