Fish allergy (finned fish) affects about 0.5 percent of the population. Seafood allergy tends to be life-long and is more common in adults than children. People who have a seafood allergy are usually only allergic to one group of seafood but can tolerate seafood of another variety.
Please note: If you are allergic to fish, you are at high risk of being allergic to crocodile meat.
