    According to the dictionary, meat is the flesh of an animal consumed as food. Since fish are animals, the flesh of fish is considered meat.

    According to Catholics, fish is not meat.

    According to vegetarians, I think the majority would consider fish meat but there are some that will eat fish but not chicken, beef, lamb, etc.

    I would say that, yes, fish is a meat. Seafood or not. >.> Fish are animals. When eating the musculature of any other animal, it is meat. We eat the fish's muscles. :3 It seems to run along the same lines. So, meat. Yes. I will stick with that.

    Part of that is that the Bible does not define "animals" the same way we do. "Animals" or "beasts" are basically land vertebrates. Birds "(fowl") and fish are considered separately. So "meats" usually does refer to land mammals, though for some reason bird flesh was included too. Fish was different enough that it became a separately category in itself.
    I think even in the rabbinic kosher laws (which often go way beyond what the scriptures actually say), the separation of "meat" from milk (which stems from an isolated verse saying not to boil a kid in his mother's milk) I believe even extends to poultry. (Now how could a bird have a cow as its mother, for that command to be anywhere near violated?!)

    Yes. But the taste and texture of most fish is such that I don't think of it as meat. It's... fish.

    Ill assume you mean for vegetarian/vegan purposes, since the question just got a "Quoi!?" from me instantly.

    I think it is considered a meat.. many vegetarians that eat fish eat vegetables for the sake of health and personal nutrition and monetary savings moreso than for feeling guilty about eating animals.

    They're not mammals, so people say no, but they are living breathing (albeit under water) creatures, so to me, yes.

    Meat is defined as tasty animals. Fish are tasty animals. Therefore, fish are meat.

    Lol. Yes.

    As are the various crustaceans, enchinoderms and molluscs that fall under the umbrella term of "seafood."

    That's probably the ultimate reason fish is not considered meat, but poultry is.
