What about fish makes it vegetarian, or even considered vegetarian?

I had this discussion earlier with some people; we couldn't figure out a legit reason for it even being considered vege.

Discuss.

That (^) may be the closest to a reason: the 'difference' between land and sea animal

It's hand crafted out of mange tout and pears in the old Norse methods.

Fish isn't strictly vegetarian. Quite a lot of people who claim to be vegetarian actually eat fish, so they're not vegetarian at all! I think some people think fish have no feelings so they decide it's ok to eat them.

You're not classed as a proper vegetarian if you eat fish. I don't eat meat but I do eat fish (no moral reasons etc. behind it, I just don't like meat!) and I'm not technically a vegetarian, which makes me a 'pescetarian'/'pesco-vegetarians'/'semi-vegetarian' - whichever term you prefer to use...

its not. a 'vegetarian' who eats fish is a pechetarian or something. it kinda annoys me when people call themselves vegie and then eat fish.

Fish isn't vegetarian. Certain vegetarians eat fish but really they are pescetarian.

Fish are friends not food.

My nan makes me laugh. She will eat ham, gammon, bacon and fish but because she doesn't eat any other meats she calls herself a vegetarian. She then complains when the vegetarian options are crap.

Kurt said a lot of things. One fifth genius, four fifths crap :p:

If you eat fish you aren't a real veggie, it's the flesh of dead animal.

Yep, I don't agree with it. I don't eat them and personally love fish. By the way, dolphins are mammals, not fish! :p:
