vegetarian and seafood in Vienna (and Budapest)?

My wife and I will be in Vienna for just under 2 weeks in March (including a 2 day jaunt to Budapest) and were wondering if anyone had any killer suggestions for pescatarians. I was in Vienna as a child but haven't been there since. I realize that the cuisine of the region is heavy on meats that we don't eat but I know that there's also a long (if maybe not as varied) history of fish dishes. Any suggestions?

Another thing we're interested in, coming from Maryland, is what immigrant communities have strong food cultures that might be different from the communities that we have access to here. I don't know if there are any small pockets of African or Asian restaurants that are cooking up amazing food. We'll be there long enough that we'll have a chance to sample a variety of foods, from cheap to slightly fancy.

Finally, we'll have a kitchen in Vienna and we love to cook, so we'll be getting local ingredients at the Naschmarkt and elsewhere. and trying out recipes ourselves. Any suggestions on awesome local produce shopping?

Thanks in advance!
