Do piscivores include animals that eat shellfish and other invertebrate marine life? (eg. squid, crabs, jellyfish)--ZayZayEM 02:32, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

No. Despite the word fish being used in some of the names of the animals and the use of the word fish in words for acquiring them (fishery, fishing) there creatures are not fish. A creature that specializes in eating molluscs would be called a molluscivore.Pbrower2a (talk) 07:19, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

If an animal eats all sorts of shellfish, then it would be a "durophagus" animal.--Mr Fink (talk) 14:24, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Connection to pescatarians?[edit]

Seems like this article should connect to one on pescatarians, explaining similarities and difference(s)? Thoughts? - Sara FB (talk) 20:05, 10 September 2014 (UTC)


I know this group's diet style very odd considering the fossils. So; my proposal about spinosauroids is some paragraph like this; Some animals, such as the spinosaurus and baryonyx,spinosauroids; are not completely piscivorous, often preying on aquatic invertebrates and\or land animals in addition to fish, while others, such as the Ornithocherius and pterodactyls, are strictly dependent on fish for food.

I also want to add Ornithocheirus to the extinct piscivores. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dredann (talkcontribs) 11:24, 25 December 2015 (UTC)
