Most of the ingredients that are used in a medical dish find their roots embedded in Maya cuisine! Hence it can be stated that Mexican seafood is purely inherent to this region. These are food items and dishes especially consumed in Baja, California. However, this kind of food culture spreads to the Pacific Coast States and, of course, the Gulf Coast and so on.
Depending on the region you are in, the kind of seafood that you consume in Mexico varies greatly which enables you to experience the myriad food cultures of this region. Mariscos is a dish that translates to seafood in Spanish and is very popular here from small shacks, and food stalls to luxurious restaurants, this is found everywhere.
Fish is very popular when it comes to enjoying the authentic seafood of Mexico. The Mexicans are really fond of fish and hence you will find an abundance of such seafood in this region. However, we cannot forget about shrimp, seafood, and so on. In fact, it is both shrimp and fish that occupy a major portion of the seafood list and menus in Mexico.
What are the kinds of fish that are consumed in Mexico?

What do you mean by Callo de Hacha seafood?
This is a shellfish dish that is exclusively found in Mexico! However, until recently the world was unaware of this fantastic dish which was present in Mexico! This seafood and shellfish is found in the Sea of Cortez which is also called the world's aquarium.
The local shellfish with its axe-shaped shell is the highlight of this region. In fact, the name is derived from the distinct shape of the scallop. The meat of this scallop is very tender and so sweet to taste, that even if you are not a die-heart fan of seafood, you will find it tempting enough.
