Not necessarily: There are other causes for the fishy odor that aren't STD related. Clearly he can't have BV as he's missing the V. He could have the same bacteria that causes that in women. Other potential causes are: bad hygiene, skin infection, UTI, ketonuria, yeast infection and trimethylaminuria (TMAU- but that usually causes that fishy odor all of the time).
