On Average, how often do you eat fish?

I was talking to a friend the other day who loves fish but only eats it about 1x per month because he doesnt feel confident cooking it. I thought back through the previous week and had eaten fish 5x, sometimes for lunch sometimes for dinner. On average, how often to you eat fish and do you eat fish more or less than beef and poultry?

  1. I eat fish about once a week. I eat meat or poultry every day.
    I find that fish does not satisfy my appetite

    1. fish or shellfish at least 3x/week.

      1. Does a can of tuna, roasted eel or sardines count? :-)

              aah, i thought you were asking if *your* consumption of those items would count. and of course, they would :)

        1. I have cut wayyy back on my fish intake for environmental reasons. I can find sustainable alternatives to things like farmed shrimp and other fish, but they are more expensive so I eat less of them than I used to. So, I probably went from having fish 5-6X/week to about 3x/week.

          Next year I hope to join my local CSF so that will up my intake, at least for the summer.
