Food is an essential part of a culture and a culture can be understood through its food. Being Taiwan an island, a considerable percentage of Taiwanese diet consists of sea products. Almost everywhere fish, shrimp, oysters or squid, is available in the menu. However, pork, lamb, beef and chicken are also common. Today, with the overfishing of the oceans, the Japanese pushing whale fishing and the Chinese craving shark fin soup, it appears that something in Taiwanese seafood culture is worth exploring.
