Here is my best explanation:

'seafood' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'one of those on ship without company has some starter of rare' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'one' could be 'a' and 'a' is found within the answer.
'of' could be 'o' and 'o' is present in the answer.
'some' could be 'a' and 'a' is found within the answer.
'starter' could be 'l' and 'l' is found in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
