Why is the smell of fish so persistant?

If you've cooked fish at home then the smell can linger mildly for days. If they serve (especially deep fried) fish in the restaurant at work, and I wear a particularly fluffy cotton shirt the smell lingers in the shirt all afternoon until I can get home and wash the shirt.

What makes the smell of fish so persistant compared to other (cooked) foods?
