Why Only Fish?

So, people like to rave about places where fish is the freshest. Whenever I go to the East coast in the summertime, I always get a lot of seafood, often caught that day. If you eat crabcakes in Kentucky, people will say you're wasting your money, 'cause it can't be fresh. Is it possible to get beef or chicken anywhere that's caught that day? And is the difference as significant as freshly caught, never frozen seafood? What makes seafood so unique in this regard?
