Why do people not like seafood?

I know someone who doesn't like seafood because she hasn't had much of it. I know seafood is commonly found raw, which can cause foodborne illness. But they still don't like it cooked. Why would that be? Cooked food doesn't cause foodborne illness.

  • I guess they're just not used to it. I don't eat fish every chance I get, often even when offered but I do eat it on occasion.

  • They don't like the smell or the taste I guess... don't forget many people have food allergies on sea food

  • Because most sea critters are like the cockroaches of the ocean. If made right they're buttery goodness though.

  • I dislike seafood because of the fishy taste along with the smell. Generally if something smells bad to a person, it tastes bad too.

  • I'm not sure why some people don't like seafood, it's delicious! But my best guess could be that they find the smell or maybe texture to be revolting.

    • Is it weird that even though i grew up seeing cockroaches regularly as well being disgusted by them shrimp do not appear the same to me.

    • Show All
    • Ew disgusting why are you consuming cow discharge lol.

      It's all perception.

      It's all just life. Subject everything. Stick to the root. We weren't discussing the make up of these things. Off topic.

    • For the same reason why you sucked on your moms boobies while being breastfed

  • I dunno - same reason some people don't like brussel sprouts, I guess. Personal preference thing.

    I personally lurve seafood. It goes in my mouth.

    • What if they're not allergic?

    • Most its simply the smell. They also possibly put up mental blocks from knowing we digest and pollute the water.

  • Fried fish tastes the best
