Posted FORUM TOPIC: Fish

Do many people have the same problem as me and that is when I go out for a meal and I state that I am vegetarian then they point out what fish options they have? It really annoys me. If people eat fish then they are not really vegetarian. I get the same when I am invited out to friends for a meal. I don't class my self as vegan even though I don't eat most dairy products. What is going on?

I seem to remember a famous chef when asked what you can give to a vegetarian to make sure they get the needed vitamins and minerals said that you can feed them with fish as most vegetarians eat it. I know that there were alot of unhappy veggies out there!

I know- people accept I am a vegetarian and then seem surprised that I don't eat fish- it's stupid! So called 'semi-vegetarians' are not real veggies. Anyway, why would someone give up some animals and not all of them? The only reason I can think of is that the land animals appear more fluffy and cute. How shallow.

You state that you are a vegetarian, they point out fish options and you explain that vegetarians don't eat fish.

Why is this a problem?

LOL!

I have been served fish on several occations because people think that a vegetarian eats fish. Too funny.

People won't know unless they are educated (not preached at) and I try and keep a smile on my face when I explain I don't eat anything with a face I am happy when people just try.

Isn't this a pescatorian - or a word spelt in a very similar way to this. It might be something to do with that fact that a number of celebrities not long ago thought it was kind of trendy to say they were vegetarian 'but I eat fish', which meant then that all vegetarians of course ate fish. For me, a vege, is plant matter only (you can throw in milk and cheese) and no flesh food whatsoever.

You are indeed correct - pescatarian is the correct term for someone who doesn't eat meat but eats fish.
