Fishy tales

There is a lot you may not know about the reality of fishing or the beautiful creatures who are killed

These beautiful creatures are almost considered vegetables, but they do feel pain and are suffering tremendously.

"Most fish don’t have lungs (lung fish do), but all fish have gills which are used to extract oxygen out of the water. Fish can breath water but not air, the opposite to us. If you take a fish out of water it can’t breath, so once it runs out of oxygen it starts to suffocate.-- it takes fish a couple of minutes for a fish to suffocate. This is nasty way to die,..." Lee Welsh

Suffocating to death is possibly the most painful way to die. Yet not only do they suffocate, there mouths are punctured with sharp hooks or they could be crushed by the weight of hundreds or thousands of fish above them while suffocating.

Then there is the issue with depletion and environmental degradation

Here are some pictures that tell their story
