Alligator Meat

But that was never really a general rule of thumb - although it was used as one of the justifications for allowing fish during Lent.  Even shellfish were a later addition for those who lived near the sea.

Dom Guéranger describes the exception in The Liturgical Year:

"For several centuries, abstinence from flesh-meat included likewise the prohibition of every article of food that belonged to what is called the animal kingdom, with the single exception of Fish, which, on account of its cold nature, as also for several mystical reasons, founded on the Sacred Scriptures, was always permitted to be taken by those who fasted."
