    Semicolon

    They say semicolon can be used between independent clauses linked with a transitional phrase or a conjunctive adverb.

    Example:
    "I like to eat fish; however, I don't like to be eaten by them."

    How about this:
    "I like to eat fish; in fact, they are nutritious; however, I don't like to be eaten by them."

    Help? Thanks!

    Re: Semicolon

    Not a teacher.

    That's too much for one sentence. I would break it into two.
