Not quite... One of the customs of the sea is that cannibalism is acceptable under certain circumstances. Usually that the officers have first pick of who to eat when the caviar runs out.

I doubt it would apply today, but there are several examples of it happening over the past few hundred years.

But it would make for an interesting episode of Sponge Bob. Where Patrick beats Squidward to death with a rock, and he and Sponge Bob consume him, one tentacle at a time.

RE: In theory: cannibalism
In a survival situation, I'd rather eat tainted meat and start antibiotics once rescued than starve before I can be rescued at all.

No.

A little known fact is that our human digestive system tdoesnt really like having human flesh in it.

You will face some severe stomache pain after eating human flesh that should put you off from trying it again.

RE: In theory: cannibalism
In the case of survival I think I could handle eating human flesh. I read somewhere that eating a human brain can cause problems sorta like the mad cow thing.

What I don't think I could handle is having to drink my own urine like the guy who got wedged under a rock on a hiking trip. Didn't they also make a movie from that story?

How did they test that theory? I imagine you'd need at least 4 groups to determine if human meat upsets the stomach and if the reason is psychological.

1. Given beef, told it is human.
2. Given beef, told it is not human.
3. Given human, told it is human.
4. Given human, told it is beef.

Not to mention Sushi, if you want to stray from mammals.

Predators all eat meat raw as well.

Sushi is not raw fish. Sushi is cooked rice with other ingredients that can be also raw fish, but not necessarily. It can be vegetables or other cooked ingredients. Raw fish or meat is sashimi.

By studying the effects it had on people who had eaten humans.

It apparently also causes a pritty nasty smell.
