    Just wondered if there was a special term, like vegan or vegetarian.

    Pray tell.

    You are just a person who doesn't eat fish don't think there is a particular term for it, but here to make you happy what about calling yourself a Fishtarian?

    do you eat any other type of meat? if not then you're a vegetarian, because vegans consume no aminal products and i assume drink milk and eat eggs so that leaves vegetarian.

    A pescetarian is a person who eats fish but not meat. Anyway, I don't think there is a word for it but I might be completely mistaken.

    NO, a pescetarian is someone who doesn't eat meat but DOES eat fish.

    OP, there is no 'name' for someone who doesn't eat fish but does eat meat.

    They eat fish and poultry, just not red meat, as I understand it.

    Anyways, I don't think there's a proper term for it, other than fussy eater :p:

    Ah that, erm.... it's just a visual representation of how I have lost the plot completely and it's a great icebreaker at parties, the zoo is also quite a favourite in the Classics society.

    Aah, it's you! I keep seeing other people with similar usernames and thinking 'is that Naranoc?' then it's not and I'm sad. :sad:

    Anyway, it's a fine word to type, and it doesn't appear to be in Firefox's dictionary. Neither is Firefox, amusingly.
