Here in Georgia, you can buy Red Lobster cheese biscuits at the grocery store.

Now, let's discuss FAST FOOD FISH: I know that Long John Silvers is pretty widespread, but how about Captain D's? That's mostly a Southern chain, and IMO much better than LJS. Captain D's was recently acquired by a new company and launched a rebound, with remodeled restaurants, and a healthy new menu. It's not anything seafood purest are going to ingest, but it's still a pretty good meal for the price. I crave me some Captain D's fish, fries and hushpuppies on occasion.

Also, I see there are still a handful of Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips in the NYC area. I've eaten there once and it was horrible.
I'm not going to let you get away with that one. You can get good seafood in all of our coastal states.

I've never eaten at a Captain D's, so I can't comment. Arthur Treacher's used to serve good fish and chips when the chain was new, which was a long time ago. I never liked Long John Silvers.

But even after happily sampling local specialties all over the country and walking away impressed, the best fish I've ever eatern is still walleye caught in cool waters and cooked right away over an open fire. Perch fry, trout from streams that only run in the spring in the Driftless, there are many great northern lake and river seafood that you, Newsboy, have no experience with and no knowledge, yet you still proclaim your local foods superior. I think the person who hasn't travelled around is in actuality you - why else would you accuse everyone else of it, and jump on someone who didn't know Red Lobster was a southern chain when it's absolutely ubiquitous in many regions, like my own. If you'd been around the country, you would know that. You also would have tried great local fish in the Midwest and other regions that you are currently absolutely ignorant of.

When it comes to fast food fish, well, to me it's the worst kind of fast food, partially due to the above. Seafood needs to be fresh more than any other kind of protein, and fast food needs to be convenient and low margin. I've never had chain fish that comes anywhere near what I catch myself or any local shop with local product across the country can whip up. Red Lobster biscuits are tasty chain products, but it's hard to go wrong when you bathe something in that much cheese, butter and garlic.
I've eaten walleye, trout, and a host of other freshly caught lake and stream fish. It's not seafood.

We would call that "fish" :-)

They CAN live in saltwater, but they are primarily fresh water fish. Where I'm from, fish is referred to as fish. Seafood is everything else in the ocean.

It depends on where you catch it. They're anadromous like shad. I knew there was a word for that but I had to look it up.

Webster disagrees - I'll consult them before you, no offense.

The first definition agrees with him, the second definition contradicts the first definition

First Definition






Second Definition





I think it's reasonable to consider "seafood" to be shellfish and marine life of the ocean... considering ya know, the word "sea".

Well, considering the Great Lakes are "inland seas," there you go.

First paragraph: "Due to their sea-like characteristics: rolling waves, sustained winds, strong currents, great depths, and distant horizons, the five Great Lakes have also long been referred to as inland seas.[6] Lake Superior is the largest continental lake in the world by area, and Lake Michigan is the largest lake that is entirely within one country."
