"'Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams, you may eat any that have fins and scales. But all creatures in the seas or streams that do not have fins and scales--whether among all the swarming things or among all the other living creatures in the water--you are to detest. And since you are to detest them, you must not eat their meat and you must detest their carcasses...'"Two interesting things about it: it is from Leviticus 11:9-11 (mmm, clean and unclean food) and it still has excellent health value for us today (as is to be expected--God's word never stops its benefits).
