Is Fish a meat?

    Was just watching a TV show in which the Chef was 'telling off' a contestant for calling fish meat.  I think of fish as meat, but I know lots of vegetarians eat fish, what do you think?

      I think that if you eat fish you are not a vegetarian - it's like claiming never to touch alcohol but enjoying the occasional beer.

                  "Your average Joe bunnie"? Speaking of cracking up!  This strand is getting funnier and funnier by the minute. I say a fish is a fish, and there is meat on a fish. Some fish are meaty and others aren't. But, when I refer to meat, I don't mean fish I mean four footed animals. If you call a fish meat, do you call a bird meat too?

                    Personally I would consider birds to be meat.

      That's the most rediculous thing to say... of course fish have feelings.. they live by their senses.

      Interestingly from a culinary perspective.. it depends where in the world the chef comes from as to whether or not fish is a meat.  We consider fish to be a meat.. refected in our dishes.

        This was an English chef, I guess in terms of is fish flesh meat, the question is: is a fish an animal?  In terms of being a vegetarian I would argue that fish aren't vegetables. wink

    I know in keeping Kosher fish is not considered meat.  It is called parve or neutral in a sense...it is neither meat nor dairy.

      Interesting, thanks for that, I had to Google Kosher to find out what it was.  Anything from the waters that has fins and scales is acceptable, other water dwelling creatures such as: lobsters, oysters, shrimp, etc are not.

    Catholics were not allowed to eat meat on Frday and still are not permitted on certain days like Good Friday however they may eat fish!
    Also I like to go fishing! If it were meat the I would be going meating!

    1. Mrvoodoo profile image60
      Mrvoodooposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Well I looked up the definition of meat and found two different answers:

      (1) the flesh of animals (including fishes and birds and snails) used as food

      (2) The edible flesh of animals, especially that of mammals as opposed to that of fish or poultry.

      So I guess it's up to the individual to decide.

      I've never eaten rabbit, I'd actually quite like to be a vegetarian, but do like a bit of meat, those lamb burgers sound just the ticket. big_smile

    debrisposted 8 years ago

    Fish are meat, they are almost purely protein and come from an animal.  I don't care how vegetarians, or chefs want to dress it up, it's meat.  As far as I'm concerned there's two requirements:

    1.)  It is protein.
    2.)  It comes from an animal.

  9. RooBee profile image77
    RooBeeposted 8 years ago

    I've also heard the flesh of a fruit referred to as the "meat" and I've heard the term "nut-meat." The last one refers to the part of a nut that you eat, and NOTHING MORE. lol

    My point is that I thought of meat as being a more broad term for flesh - not necessarily bodily tissues.

    It's probably a geographical thing (as you guys seem to be coming to already) & everybody uses the word a bit differently.

    Oh,btw denisematt, the PETA bunny-rights brigade has been phoned. You may want to flush the nuggets and flee. wink

    When you grow up with a dad that eats nothing but barbecue steak and roast beef, you kind of end up either loving meat or hating meat. I am a meat lover for sure. Give me a barbecue steak anytime over a salad. I do consider fish to be a meat though. I live in British Columbia, Canada and have eaten plenty of Pacific Salmon while here. Ummmm, it is so good.

    I think fish should be considered meat. I eat fish but nothing else, no beef, poultry or pork. If people ask "are you a vegetarian?" I just say yes because it is shorter than having to explain myself. I don't eat beef, poultry, or pork because I do not like the taste, and I haven't taken a bite since I was 12.

      I guess I think flesh = meat, a fish is a type of animal, but there is no animal called meat.

    There are different definitions of what meat is though. So meat could be the muscle and fat of any animal, not just a mammal. Or strickly that of a mammal. In my opinion... fish is meat.

    So what about alligator? Ostrich? They aren't mammals but most people consider it meat.

    For some reason fish is not considered as flesh. But I think its meat.

    Whoever calls themselves a vegetarian and eats fish is not a vegetarian because a true vegatarian does not eat animal flesh.
    People who eat fish along with plants are pescetarians.

          My husband is a vegetarian for nearly 40 years and he eats fish because fish is FISH.  Not meat, otherwise we would call it MEAT.  Vegans do not eat fish as they do not eat any living creatures or anything that they are used for hence they do not eat any dairy either.  They do not consider plants and vegetables "Living creatures".  So they eat lots of those and legumes and soy for protein in place of Meat and Fish.

    I think that if you're going to become a vegetarian then you can't put fish under a different category, after-all most people's reasons behind vegetarianism is the killing of animals, and last time I checked fish are living creatures too.

    I on the other hand enjoy meat too much to become a vegetarian!!

    Just in case anyones interested I just noticed that this thread is now at position 11 in Google for the question 'is fish meat?'

    But many other forums/groups etc. have been asking themselves the same question, having done some reading through them it seems that the most popular belief is:

    Fish IS meat.
