"Chicken frames" are what is left when all the meaty portions have been removed - like a skeleton, except there is still some meat attached. I buy them from the butcher to make chicken stock/soup. I haven't heard it used in relation to fish before - but I see no reason why it couldn't be.

Lee, thank you for your comment, I read it as a name of commodity. It should be as what you said.

"Greenland Halibut" certainly is a kind of fish and whether "frames" refers to the bones of the fish is unclear without proper context. I have never heard the words "frames" used to mean "bones," before, so even I can't tell you very well. Could you perhaps give an example sentence where you found this phrase?
