Seafood is food derived from aquatic animals, such as fish, mollusks, and crustaceans. These animals provide protien in many diets around the world. The occupation of people who harvest seafood is called fisherman.

It is also a term used for the aquatic ingredients i.e. the fishes, in such foods.

The term is not restricted to "sea" creatures, but may include fresh-water animals as well. The plants of the sea are often also edible, including sea lettice, nori, which is a type of seaweed, and most simple algae, but they are not considered seafood as such. See also aquaculture, mariculture
