>>> you included the following table, which indicates that the total fish consumption of the traditional Okinawan diet is only 1% of calories. Is this correct?

Yes. That data is based on what they were consuming prior to the influence of the "west" in 1950.

>> There seems to be a general notion that the Japanese and Okinawans both eat plenty of fish??

As with most "general" notions about diet, including those of what the Okinawans and the Greeks etc ate, they are not correct or supported by the data.
