Do people really consider rainbow trout to be "seafood"?

Yes. Whether fish comes from an ocean, a sea, a lake, a river, or a stream, it's "seafood".

See, for me that's not true. And for Merriam-Webster (marine fish and shellfish used as food or of kinds suitable for food), too...

But obviously not everyone agrees! I mean, it wouldn't have been a Jeopardy clue if nobody thought so.

I'd call it seafood, if only because it's the easiest way to identify a single class of food I don't like. Catfish, trout, lobster, clams, crabs. I hate them all and they all taste the same to me. It was hard to grow up in Baltimore hating crabs, but I did it.

Love Old Bay, though.

Weird. I don't see a way to subscribe to comments, but you're on blogspot just like I am.

No, it's not seafood for me (BrE). It's Fish. Seafood and Fish overlap, but for me they ain't identical.

@The Abbot: I don't know what to tell you. As far as I can see it's turned on.

And tonight Alex pronounced the first word in Brazil's motto "Ordem e Progresso" as "or-DAYM" -- when it's more like "OR-deng." Why can't he be briefed, or given a phonetic spelling on his clue card the way, e.g., that the AP does for names etc. on its copy? Grrr...

I do not know, Kathie. He butchers Russian, too - and so I have no confidence in languages I don't know.
