It's probably not wise to eat crabs which have eaten zombie flesh.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Bio-Zombies do need to breath. Un-dead Zombies do not.

Bio-Zombies would drown if they could not keep their heads above water. Would they even try it?

The gas build up in the decaying flesh of Undead Zombies would cause them to bob like corks in the ocean. Meaning that yes, they could paddle towards you until such time as the gas in their flesh dissipated and they would sink. This would make them more dangerous because they could simply walk under water.
Walking under water is not such a problem if you are anchored in deep water. Zombies are not very sturdily put together, so the water pressure would do some damage. Plus, being pretty much brain dead they certainly couldn't equalize by holding their nose and blowing hard, so their brains would probably implode with their ear drums if they went much deeper than 50'. Not to mention the bends, they would die within seconds of surfacing.

What scares me more is those smart zombies, like the ones in I am legend.

The other benefit of them being underwater is they could no longer smell you and once there inner ear blew out could no longer hear as well. You still wouldn't want to swim at an unsecured beach. Standard netting and regular dredging would be needed i'm afraid.

****! You would have to be careful of all seafood! Another reason to only fish in deep water! I love oysters - this sucks!!!

I'm not sweating it. I have several cases of MRE's to get me started. I'll plant crops after that, and if I'm not mistaken, I think there's a little livestock on the island.

Oh- I've got the "reproduction partner" taken care of as well.

Seems as though we are not alone in our speculations.
