How do you describe a person who does not eat meat, but eats fish?

If they donít eat fish, they are called strict vegetarians.

Our enemy says this:

The word demi-vegetarian appears in our file with the sense 'a person who eats fish but not meat', though people so described may include those who eat poultry. The word pesco-vegetarian is sometimes seen, and pescatarian. The simplest option is probably non-meat-eater!

Bobo is a vegetarian: she only eats nuts and leaves because she doesnít believe in the taking of a life to satisfy societyís appetite for meat; Mark, on the other hand, is not a strict vegetarian: he has shares the same beliefs as Bobo, although he considers it okay to eat fish.

 

I reckon this is your best bet. It is not an exact definition, but it is more useful for students. Mind you, probably not too many vegetarians, strict or otherwise, on the Mainland! Fact or fable: you can eat monkey brains, bear paws and tiger penis on the Mainland?

 

Hey, this reminds me of a show in Japan I saw about China. A troupe of monkeys was up-to-no-good in a village, so the villagers left out some rice wine. The monkeys drunk it, and one became drunk and fell asleep. The villagers dressed this monkey in a red t-shirt. When the troupe came back to town, they let the monkey loose. It rain towards its mates who were freaked out by the red t-shirt and rain away. It was so funny to watch!

Does Mark also consider it okay to eat dairy products and eggs? And if not, what difference does it make with John who does?

If Mark didnít eat dairy products or eggs, he would be a vegan.
