Can I eat butter? I can use olive oil in some dishes, but sometimes I need butter. I'm new to pescetarianism, so I still don't know all the rules.

    You can set your own rules. There are no vegetarian police who will arrest you for eating the wrong things.

Both vegetarians and pescetarians eat dairy and eggs, it is just that pescetarians eat also fish and seafood.

    Exactly. It's only vegans that avoid butter. Vegans: no animal products, vegetarians: no products that require killing animals, but other animal products are all right, pescetarian: vegetarian except also fish. Good luck! And welcome to the site.
