comment Why is it that white fish do not have as strong of a “fishy” taste as other fish?
You can soak a fish in milk prior to cooking to mellow out the flavor and remove some of the fishiness.

comment What is special about pork that makes it so suitable for curing?
I would guess that it is a combination of animal cost, regional climate, and societal impact. A pig would be a lot of meat for a poorer family, so much of it would be cured so as not to waste it. Also, there may have been need for long term storage to weather winter months which might not be needed in other climates. In those climates where weather was less of an issue (Middle East/India), pork has not been as popular as say, lamb due to social/religious influence. Just speculation (and thus a comment and not answer)

Steel, because the Victorinox Forschner knives are steel, and are just plain awesome for the price.

Answers the part of why Hawaii and Guam are such large consumers of Spam, and why it was conceived - Milesmeow's answer definitely tackles the actual origin of the dish.
