Fish are friends🐠NOT food🍣
We’ve all seen or participated in fishing and witnessed the silent suffering of a sea animal gasping, bleeding, writhing, with a sharp piece of metal piercing them while they struggle for breath and freedom. Fish feel pain..obviously.
Sure, I enjoyed the taste pleasure of eating fish and other l animals for most of my life but paying people to kill innocent animals for me doesn’t align with my values anymore. People should re-evaluate themselves if they are cool with animals suffering on their behalf.
I quit eating sea animals entirely after I learned about bycatch which is an industry term for the animals unintentionally killed during the commercial fishing process. This means that for every fish that’s pulled out of the ocean there are sharks, turtles, whales, dolphins, birds, and many other species caught on hooks or in nets that are killed and dumped back in the oceans.
🦐For every pound of shrimp pulled from the oceans, 20 lbs of other animals are also killed.
1-2 trillion sea animals are killed for food every year and our oceans are predicted to be FISHLESS by 2048 if we don’t cut this shit out. If you really care about #oceanconservation
then stop killing animals. Duh.
Our oceans are already full of plastic and toxic runoff from farm animal waste, pesticides, and other gnarly chemicals humans have created. When you eat sea animals, you are eating plastic, heavy metals, cholesterol, etc. which contributes to a litany of health issues like cancer, Alzheimer’s, infertility, heart disease, and more.
Why kill animals, destroy oceans, and harm ourselves when we can just eat some amazing #vegansushi
