Smile Everybody, It’s Fish Amnesty Day!
Yup, that’s right. It’s finally Fish Amnesty Day again! Fish Amnesty Day was created by PETA 10 years ago as a much less violent alternative to National Hunting and Fishing Day, which (by an amazing coincidence) happens to be on the same date.
For some reason, fish are often the last animal people cut from their diets when they go vegetarian, so if you’re someone who’s been thinking about giving up eating fish but never got around to it, this is a great time to take the plunge. PETA has a whole site about the lives of these fascinating animals at FishingHurts.com, and once you’ve checked that out, if you’d like to celebrate Fish Amnesty Day by giving up fish for good, click here to take PETA’s pledge to be veg.
I will be marking this momentous occasion with a meal at my favorite vegetarian sushi restaurant, Kotobuki. Happy Fish Amnesty Day, everyone!
