Re: “One Fish, Two Fish, Local Fish, Ugly Fish

What is "ugly" and extremely cruel is animal abuse. Science has shown that fishes are sentient, they suffer fear and pain. Fishing causes immense fear and pain to these sentient beings. All of the nutrients we need in order to thrive can be obtained more healthfully, humanely, and environmentally responsibly from plant sources. Needlessly harming animals for food or any other reason is animal abuse: plain, inhumane, and unjustifiable.

If you want seafood please opt from among the many marvelous vegan versions there are of virtually every type of seafood imaginable. They're better for us, for the other animals, and for the environment, and they're delicious!
