Fish Ethics

Postby atlantis_child » Thu Jun 21, 2007 4:31 pm

I started thinking today when I initially misread the title of a topic, how can people revere their fish so much, yet eat other fish for dinner?
And remembering goggling "fish fry" when I wanted a picture of a baby fish and getting stuff totally different...

Now don't get me wrong, I too used eat fish yet adore pet fish. But being a vegetarian of five years, ( ironically, the first thing I came out on going veggie was fish for dinner ) and now being being a fish keeper I just don't understand.

How can you care so much about your aquarium fish, then go and eat other fish? (which aren't treated too humanely at all while being killed) I'm not accusing people of being of being cruel, I just don't understand the logic (if there is one). Thinking about this just makes me confused and sad. :(

This doesn't happen really happen with any other pets in our culture, so why..?

I think that this is problem of our culture, problem of education, problem of not wanting difficult and sudden changes in our lives, problem of economy, problem of creating new diet, of different interests directed towards making money ( as the problem of catching our "galaxies" in the nature, imagine that Heiko Bleher collected some pseudomugils from the deep forest of Papua and now he says that all the pseudomugils furcatus in our aquariums originate from exactly those catched in one single journey! Isn't it sounds strange? That is great feat of those aquarists who breed them in captivity. We can stop the collecting the same way, breeding them in our tanks and selling cheaper.) These are hard problems to solve, hard because of ignorance, laziness and always wanting more the easiest way... we are so strange and ambivalent creatures :? It is sad but also our "galaxies" were food for some people in Myanmar. And probably they still are. This is my first post on this forum, it is sad but I hope that we breed these wonderful fish enough to end collecting them in nature. Maybe that's why are we here for? - To save them?...

PS - don't blame the exporters, they really don't know what they do... We need only few fish guys... not 15.000

Sorry to say this but as a fishkeeper i eat fish regulary on fridays, i was brought up in Guernsey, one of the channel Islands. I remember going to church every sunday (i hated having brill cream put in my hair) and fish was eaten every friday. After i left Guernsey i hated eating fish till i met my wife 18 years ago and now having children of my own we eat fish again on fridays (i dont send them to church thou).

I plan on putting iron-on letters on a plain navy shirt I have that says "Fish are friends not food" like from "FInding Nemo".
:wink:
