Definition:

A pesco-vegetarian diet is free of red meat (beef, pork, lamb, etc.) and poultry, but includes fish and other sea animals. Most animal activists, vegans and vegetarians do not consider the pesco-vegetarian diet to be a type of vegetarian diet, and do not use the term because it is confusing.

Examples:
Some natural food restaurants have a pesco-vegetarian menu.
