Fish, Shellfish & Other Seafood

 

Seafood is a term used to describe any sea creature that is served as food or is suitable for eating. This includes seawater fish and shellfish, along with other sea creatures and plants such as jellyfish, kelp and octopus.

The term is also extended to include fish and other creatures from fresh water, such as carp, perch, frogs or snails.
