1.  How often do you eat fish or seafood?  Not as often as I should.  My dad has been fishing in the ocean every summer (not a job, for fun) for over 25 years so we always have fish and I never have to buy it.  He mostly gets halibut, so it's just a matter of are you getting low, how many packages do you want?  And we usually have quite a bit of salmon.  My dad, dh bil anyone else have gone salmon fishing to areas where you catch them in a net and your limit is 30 a day, per person!  But then some years they have gone and only got 2 for the whole group.  You have to go when the fish are running as they say.  Ok maybe no one here has heard that phrase.  He got a new boat last year, it's something like below picture--keping in mind I don't even remember the size or brand of boat to give you a picture, this is just a general idea.

2.  What are your favorite kinds of fish or seafood?  I like both halibut & salmon and of course shrimp, crab, scallops.  That reminds me he used to get Dungeness crab, but they are fished out.

3.  Do you have any favorite fish or seafood recipes?  No I don't, ever since I've cooked for myself I've looked for and have many fish recipes becuase if it's soemthing you have around all they time, you don't want to eat it the same way all the time.  At least I don't.  I could pass on a few, but I'd have to look at home.  Do you think you would want salmon recipes or white fish recipes?  My biggest tip is not to overcook it.  If you are broiling it or grilling or anything, it's easy to check it and not be sure it's done and wait a few more minutes and then it's overcooked.

On that boat picture my dad's boat has the cabin all the way in the front with more space in the back, instead of in the middle like this picture. Like a said, just generally like this. His was brand new last spring and I don't even remember what kind it is.

Yes don't buy that damned farmed salmon!  We have no salmon right now because the runs were not good last year in the bay where my dad has his cabin.  Last year he got a lot.  And on years when there's not much salmon that my dad caught, I have bought salmon from the fisherman who has nets right in front of my dad's cabin-literally his cabin his right on the beach.  The guy is a commercial/native fisherman and has the rights for that area and I have bought the fish from him for $10 a salmon.

1. At least once a week, more if possible.

2.  Wild salmon, shrimp and well let's be honest here... I like almost any fish or seafood.

3.  I have a really good lobster corn chowder that I make the day after Christmas, and a I love cedar planked salmon.

I grew up with Friday fish frys too, when I livedi in the midwest.  Not through any churches, my dad and his friends caught fish in the lakes nearby.  I remember mostly eating bluegills that are mostly bones!

Amazing, it must taste amazing so fresh!  I love wild salmon, trout is my second favorite and fresh caught if possible, although I haven't been trout fishing in decades.
