You cannot be a vegetarian and eat fish.

Of course fish are not vegetables; but language is defined by usage and not logic - whether you like it or not, many people use the word "vegetarian" to mean "non meat-eater" and there's nothing you can do about that. You could try using "pesce-vegetarian" or "pescetarian" yourself and hope that people catch on.

I think when Rei says she dislikes meat, by extension that would of course mean fish too.

I would not assume that, but simply ask whether or not she ate fish.

In Rei's case, I would assume that her preferences would be like Nadia's, i.e. based off Anno's.

I always figured because meat had a slight blood taste- similar to LCL? We know Shinji says it smells like blood- maybe that has to do with it?

I know the rebuild is a different entity, but the sub I saw she actually stated she doesn't eat meat.. Not just dislike.

Yeah, but a blunt statement of 'doesn't eat meat' could cover a wide variety of things, from simply disliking and preferring not to eat it all the way up to a physical inability to consume it. A statement that vague leaves a broad net for interpretation.
Though, Gob still might look good in a cocktail dress.

We have to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, and work. But work has to come in third.
