is a more recent term and may or may not be considered a degree of vegetarian
ism. Pescatarians will eat fish
, but no meat, poultry, game or slaughter
by-products. They are not considered to be a "true" vegetarian, by most vegetarian's standards, but some consider themselves to be. In fact, some vegetarians are rather hostile
to pescatarians. For example, the person who runs Swabe.org says that they can "in no way be seen as adequately adhering to the vegetarian ethic".
-pescatarians (or ova-lacto, as I've also seen it) will eat eggs and milk, and those who do make up the majority of the group. Health wise, pescatarians don't have to worry about getting vitamin B12
as much as straight out vegetarians.
