Preheat vegetable oil in deep-fat fryer, or heavy-bottomed pot, to 375 degrees. Pat fish dry; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. For batter, whisk together remaining 1 cup flour, baking powder, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Add milk and canola oil. Whisk in beer until smooth.
Coat fish with flour mixture, then dip into batter, turning to coat and letting excess batter drip off. Fry fish, 3 pieces at a time, in hot oil until golden brown and fish reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees; drain on paper towels. Transfer fish to a rimmed baking pan; keep warm in oven with fries. Before serving, season with coarse salt and malt vinegar. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
