Seafood eaten by my OH over 8 nights on the Queen Mary 2:

  • salmon
  • smoked salmon
  • shrimp
  • crab
  • clams
  • mussels
  • langoustine
  • tuna
  • cod
  • scallops
  • lobster
  • haddock
  • sole
  • blanchbait/whitebait
  • sardines
  • kippers
  • unidentified mollusc

My mother has for many years asserted that OH has gills (this being the only reason he can talk at such length without drawing breath).  He’s clearly been dining amongst his own kind.
