The problem is that your Jewish roommate is singularly uneducated in his own religion.

Your roommate really doesn't know much about Judaism. The rules for what is kosher and what isn't are based on what's written in the Torah. These rules might have some health benefits, but that isn't the reason for them. And the rules for animals (including sea animals) don't apply to vegetables.

Sorry, you seem confused. The Torah does not limit what plants we can eat. ALL plants are Kosher, your deciding to take something unrelated and to try and apply it incorrectly does not mean that it has any validity. Hmm, and you are aware that merely being a scavenger does not make an animal unkosher? Want an example? The Duiker is small buck that also scavenges and eat insects. However since it has a cloven hoof and chews the cud it is 100% Kosher. And the fact that lobster/shrimp etc are inkosher has ZERO to do with them being bottom feeders. It has to do with the fact that the Torah states that things that live in the water must have fins and scales Vayikra (Leviticus) Chapter 11:9 ט אֶת-זֶה, תֹּאכְלוּ, מִכֹּל, אֲשֶׁר בַּמָּיִם: כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת בַּמַּיִם, בַּיַּמִּים וּבַנְּחָלִים--אֹתָם תֹּאכֵלוּ. 9 These you may eat ofl that are in the waters: whatever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, these you can eat. And repeated in the Torah in Devarim (Deuteronomy) Chapter 14:9 ט אֶת-זֶה, תֹּאכְלוּ, מִכֹּל, אֲשֶׁר בַּמָּיִם: כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת, תֹּאכֵלוּ. 9 You can eat from these that are in the waters: whatever has fins and scales you can eat it would appear that your room mates knowledge fo Judaism and Torah is very lacking, not too surprising since he doesn't adhere to Jewish law!
