FISH ARE NOT SWIMMING VEGETABLES!
It’s convenient to believe that fish don’t feel fear and pain like mammals do, but this isn’t true. It’s their misfortune that fish merely do not express their pain in a way that is easily recognizable to humans.
Watch this short video for an excellent dramatization of why fish are often misunderstood and undervalued as sentient creatures.
The truth is commercial fish farming conditions are horrific: The fish suffer from gross overcrowding, lice infestations, and feces-polluted water that in turn lead to algae blooms, oxygen depletion, and the death of other marine species.
It’s hard enough to get people to care about cute fluffy animals — that’s why we’re taking time to fight for fish, who die in much, much higher numbers than those of land mammals, and suffer just the same.
Some signs and leaflets will be provided but as always feel free to create your own great posters.
