We eat 8 to 10 meals with some kind of seafood per month and sometimes more depending on what is in season. We also are adventurous in our choices. I'm sure those of us that live in coastal areas are exposed to really fresh seafood and probably have more of it in our diet. I willingly admit that I'm a snob and very particular about buying it.

Canned-fish all the time.

Fresh or frozen that is quality, hum, out of my price-range now.

Sorry, not eating low-quality fish like farm-raised Tilapia from China.

I have canned tuna sandwiches, a couple of times a week. I also like salmon, buy it when it`s on sale. Hubby likes cod, so I buy that when it`s on sale to.
My favorite though is shellfish.....lobster, steamers,oysters. We don`t have these very often though.

About 6 times.

We always have shrimp in the freezer, so we have them a couple of times a month. Salmon, a couple of times. Once in awhile we have frozen fried clams and fish fillets. Otherwise, some fresh fish about twice. Anytime I can get nice swordfish I do. It’s my favorite.

LOTS. We like the Trident salmon steaks and pollock fish sticks from COSTCO. Plus snapper or other "'rock fish" from Winco, plus shrimp from our local market. I've eaten tilapia and lived but never see it in the stores here.

We would eat seafood 5 days a week if it was fresh, cheap and available. I prefer wild caught and sustainable fish, so that eliminates most of the fish in the fish counter at the store. Additionally, I'll only buy fish previously frozen if I'm going to cook it that night or if it's still frozen which narrows down the selection even more. To top it off, not a fan of any fish that has to be transported half way around the world, so that limits the selection even further. So, it boils down to about 3 or 4 times a month unfortunately.

We always have shrimp (several kinds) in the freezer along with squid and conch. Right now there are also Maine lobster, red abalone, tuna and halibut. When in season there will also be picked crawfish tails. When it comes to canned tuna, I will only buy yellowfin in olive oil from either Spain or Italy.

Not very much. We are in landlocked MN and seafood, shellfish in particular, is my favorite. There's only one place in town I'll eat it as they seem to have a good provider.

We have a friend who is a professional fishing guide who shares walleye, sunnies and crappies with us but I often give them to Bachelor Son. I love the walleye but they are few and far between - precious as gold.

Before the summer is over I'd like to grill some sea scallops and some shrimp.

Hubby and I eat a lot of seafood - mainly wild salmon (almost at least 4x week) and other different types as well. When we eat at high end restaurants or steak places, I always order seafood -- my favorite dish is pan seared Chilean Sea Bass with a side of veggies. People think I'm crazy for not ordering a good steak (and I do eat meat) but I just love seafood.
