The Meatless Monday website doesn't seem to have much information regarding this, but according to some articles, fish is not included as meat in the campaign. I've e-mailed Meatless Monday to confirm; will let you know when I hear back. Thanks.

I'm confused--was the Dungeness crab at Locanda del Lago a Meatless Monday dish? Crab is not a meatless option.
