This have probably been done before, but I couldn't find it. What are the main differences? Which do you prefer? What's the most popular and unique options from each coast? If you want to include Alaska and Hawaii in the west coast category for more discussion, go for it.

East coast. As much as I like the West Coast salmon. I nust think the East Coast has more variety and more original cuisine

Hawaii by itself wins for me. As a huge raw fish fan decades before 'poke' came to the mainland, I was eating our version of poke(called 'ota) forever.

I also eat octopus every now and then. Mussels too.

As far as here, I love the dungeoness crab, abalone, sea urchin, etc. I make a mean poke from bass too.

Alaska snow crab legs are the best so I'll probably have to say the west coast.

Would the GUlf Coast be considered East Coast. Because we have the best seafood here, especially Louisiana.

East Coast....I love my lobsters with claws, not deformed; prefer the shrimp, scallops, Maryland crabs, Stone crabs, and white fish.

hard for me. West Coast has the Alaska Salmon and Dungeouness crabs. But I prefer much of everything else on the East Coast. I am also assuming the Gulf Coast is part of the East Coast here.

Yes...flounder and filet of sole.

Add clam chowder.

Are we including Nova Scotia for the East Coast—in which case, add salmon.
