Had the same experience with seafood because of a school fish sandwich that was logged in stale grease but still frozen at the middle. I did not touch any form of seafood again until just a couple years ago. I actually grew up by the ocean in Australia and had good memories of eating fresh fish, but yeah that one sandwich turned me off fish and seafood forever. Somewhere along the way too, a Korean friend's mom was boiling squid in her house one day when I came over and that was like a nail in the coffin.
