What does South Florida have against eating whole fish?

There is almost nowhere you can get a whole fish on the grill, which I find very odd and frustrating since Florida is so big on seafood. In NY there are many restaurants that serve this, especially mediterranean restaurants and some even base their menus around a large variety of fresh whole fish. The fact that so many transplanted NYers live here and that we have access to fresh seafood year round would make you think that there would be a demand for it but it's almost the opposite.

The one place by me that has it on their menu stopped serving it because of "complaints." (Why anyone would order a whole fish and then complain about the fact that's it's whole, is incomprehensible to me.)

I just don't understand.
