In brief: In vitro, yes but...
In vivo, it would render your fish dish unpalatable and rather expensive.
Since silver ions (single free-form silver) produce free radicles that can kill bacteria(the process can be done in a petri dish), it would mean impregnating and infusing your fish with silver- yuck.
