Overheard at Harbor View Seafood Restaurant in Manila: “Oh, I love seafoods!”
Me too. I share the same craving for fish and shellfish. Trouble is, the word seafood is a noncount noun–that is, it cannot be counted, and it is always singular (check out my discussion on noncount nouns here and here).
This is what Learner’s Dictionary says:
As with other noncount nouns, seafood uses the quantifiers much or less (and not many or few or several).
Examples: Paz ate too much seafood. I need to cut back on seafood. The less seafood I eat, the better.
