  • not all seafood is created equal... shellfish are bottom feeders, and I do not count them as food (nor do I consider pork to be edible). Fish in general is good, darker fish means more omega 3s. That is the "Good" kind of fat, in case you didn't know. yes, in general, seafood is lower in fat, cholesterol, and batter for you... Although I wouldn't eat a "crap" lol

    I am a vegetarian who occasionally eats fish... that should tell you something. Yes, seafood is superior.

  • seafood isnt that bad in moderation just like all other meats. I would say its certainly better than red meat...its all how you prepare it too...I know many people love lobster with melted butter.....its the butter that kills the nutritional value.

  • In general seafood is better for you, but it all depends on the preparation. If you fry it or cook it with heavy, fatty sauces it will be very calorie dense. Broiled fish is very good for you. It has Omega 3's, which your body needs.

  • Ok, so I googled it for you. Really not that hard to type it in the search box and click on one of the choices.


    This info was at http://www.great-workout.com/nutrition/seafood/seafood-nutrition-facts.cfm


    Shrimp (king prawns) 1 gram fat


    Lobster 1.5 grams fat


    Fish depends on what kind it is


    Scallops 1.5 grams fat


    Crab .5 gram fat
