Seafood is every sea animal that is served like food or is fit for eating. This generally includes seawater animals, such as fish and shellfish. By addition, in North America though not normally in the United Kingdom, the word seafood is also useful to similar animals from fresh water and all suitable for eating aquatic animals are collectively referred to as seafood.

Edible seaweeds are hardly ever considered seafood, although they come from seawater and are generally eaten around the world. See the type of sea vegetables.

The harvesting of seafood is identified as fishing and the cultivation of seafood is recognized as aquaculture or simply fish farming.

Seafood is a basis of protein in many diets around the world.
