No. They are pescatarian

Lacto-Ovo vegetarians eat eggs and drink milk.
Lacto Vegetarians drink milk but dont eat eggs.
Ovo vegetarians eat eggs but dont drink milk

Vegans eat nothing that comes from an animal, including milk, eggs, honey and usually avoid wearing or using anything that an animal produces such as wool, silk, leather and cosmetics tested on animals.

A lot of lacto/ovo/pescatarian say their vegetarian because it's easier than trying to explain (and/or justify) eating fish/dairy/eggs, especially when you're at a restaurant.

This is in the same way that preists of a certain religion have become notirious for confusing celibacy with only having sex with choir boys.

Extend that into "won't eat anything that is animal whehter it has a face or not" and then you are a vegetarian

Whenever I am offered fish as a vegetarian option I ask for some fish seeds so I can grow some in my own garden.

According to science, fish is meat.

According to some religions, fish is not meat.

I don't believe in the latter but I don't bother getting my panties in a bunch when I encounter those who do.
