Are oyster, abalone, and scallop vegetarian?

 

Oyster, mussel, abalone, scallop, and clams of all sorts are seafood

often mistaken for being vegetarian because of their relatively still,

immobile existence underwater. Not so. Such water creatures though

not appearing as lively or active as fish, they are living and hence

carnivorous, not vegetarian.
