Two-thirds of the world is covered in water. The ocean seems huge and empty, but actually it’s full of wonderful things to eat! From shellfish to canned tuna, there is plenty of variety in seafood.

To some people, a nice clam chowder or crab bisque is a delicacy. To others, there’s just something fishy about eating fish.

 I like seafood but not all kinds of seafood. When I was living in Houston, I loved to eat crawfish so much that I can eat  until I was very full without having lunch or dinner. It may be funny to hear so, but many of my relatives & friends who live there have the same idea with me.

Yes of course i love eating seafood a lot and my favorite are Crab and Calamari and Shrimp and yes i agree with Mason, it’s an embarrassing thing to have seafood in public, for me i can’t imagine myself having seafood , for example, at a restaurant or at my work, i would fill the place with this fishy smell not good at all, i’d rather having seafood at home, in this case i would have it comfortably and enjoy myself.

Seafood is good and more healthy. But except fish and seaweeds, I don’t really like seafood like crab, clam or something else.



I work at a coffee shop and people usually like tuna more than salmon.

I’m not a big fan of seafood but yeah sure seafood is really healthy. They have lots of proteins and something that we hear a lot lately is Omega3 which our body needs it and doctors say it’s something that we have to eat regularly. One other thing that might be interested to my friends is that here in Iran at the new year it’s traditional to eat fish together with rice as our first meal of the new year.

I love seaweeds. Very much. Sometimes, I feel like diving into the ocean and get a bunch of sea weeds there and eat them all. I don’t know, it’s wierd, but it’s like oxygen for me. They have something that I miss greatly and I try to replenish the missing nutrients. And they’re so tasty. It’s totally a delicacy for me.


I don’t mind the smell of canned tuna unless a person will share a sandwich, then it’s no problem for me. :))
