PETA Mermaid Sticks Up for Fish

Written by PETA | March 31, 2011

Remember the scene from Finding Nemo when the shark is reminding himself, “Fish are friends, not food?” He was right, of course, but sometimes people forget that, which is why a PETA mermaid took to the streets of Providence, Rhode Island to remind people that giving up meat for Lent includes fish too.
 

 
Fish are intelligent, sensitive animals who have impressive long-term memories. They enjoy gentle contact and brush up against each other like cats who rub against people’s legs. And they don’t have to be covered in fur to experience pain and fear while being killed.

If you wouldn’t hook a kitten, don’t hook a fish. Instead, take a peek at our cuddly sea kittens, design a fin ball of your own, and let fish stay under the sea.

    So you are saying that people shouldn’t fish to feed their family? This is just a ridiculous statement, fishing is an important part of many economies lifetstyles and people like you are just ruining others lives.
