Besides Japan, do other cultures have a tradition of raw seafood dishes?

I know Europe has the Tuna Tartare, but is that all? Or is that an American invention?

I once read the chinese had an ancient tradition of eating raw fish, but no longer exists.

Peru has the Ceviche. I hear Italy has something called Crudo, but is that all raw fish?

I had sashimi just two months ago in South Korea. It's very common and certainly part of their food culture

In Europe, traditionally it's steak tartare, NOT tuna tartare. Tuna tartare was invented fairly recently, and I wouldn't classify it as part of any regional food culture.

Crudo is Italy's take on sashimi. I believe Italy also originated beef carpaccio.

Those ubiquitous, trendy poke bowls originate in Hawaii, but obviously are based on Japan's sashimi/sushi dishes. Personally, I think they are away of ruining perfectly good raw fish. I think it's deconstructed sushi - made by lazy people. I'll also predict the trend will be kaput in 5 or less years. Sort of like all those frozen yogurt shops that were on every street corner a few years ago.

There are Scandinavian traditional dishes that include dry-curing and cold smoking seafood, which, unlike brining and hot smoking, doesn't actually cook the flesh, and also drying it and soaking it in lye.

Conch salad is very popular in the Bahamas, which is basically a Ceviche. Gravlax and pickled herring in Scandinavia. Raw oysters and clams are popular in several countries.

I did not realize those are eaten raw. I have eaten them, and always thought there were cooked. What about anchovies?
