Fish feel pain just like us

I can't even count how many times I've been asked if I eat fish or if a vegetarian can eat fish and my only answer is: do you think fish is a vegetable? Do you plant them and water them and make them grow? Or do you think they are living creatures with brains and a life?

Why do people think fish aren't animals? Do you have any thoughts or ideas?

Fish live in another amazing world and I hope that we can learn to respect that world and all the habitants in it.

I'm very impressed by fish and everything they can do and there is no doubt in my mind that they are at least as sentient as any of us. 

What we do to the habitants of the underwater world is disgusting to say the least.

I completely agree with you. People really don't understand that fish are actually alive. Like, most parents wouldn't take their kids to a slaughterhouse to watch chickens get their throat slit. but it's not weird to take the kids fishing??
