What's it called when you don't eat meat but eat fish? I know it's not a vegetarian but I do know there is a name for it and I've heard it somewhere before but I can't think what it is

honestly i miss salmon, swordfish, and makarel alot. kinda funny how you love the tast, but not the fact that what you are eating is a dead 'animal'. fish vs chicken vs beef was always something i had in the back of my mind. suprisingly, fish isn't always the cleaner of the lot.

bds is correct. Pescetarian/pescetarian would suggest that you ONLY eat fish.

That seems silly. Then a vegetarian would ONLY eat vegetables, not dairy or eggs (and depending on how strict your definition of vegetables is, no grains, legumes, etc either).



I read in one of my veg cookbooks that pescetarian is the "seafood diet", basically just vegetarian plus fish.

Hah, little did you know those are classified too.



Lacto for dairy and ovo for egg.



So a vegetarian that includes dairy and egg is a lacto-ovo vegetarian, a vegetarian that only includes eggs for example is an ovo vegetarian.

When I was still eating fish, I referred to myself as a pesco-vegetarian.

In some languages/contexts that is how it's defined.
