West Hartford, Conn. -- Wearing nothing but her tail fins and waving signs
that read, "I'm a Fish—Not a Filet" and "Fish Are Not Swimming
Vegetables," PETA's giant fish mascot,
Tiffany Tuna, will protest outside Max's
Oyster Bar in West Hartford—in an effort to show people that fish and other sea
animals are not ours to eat:
Time: 12 noon
Place: Max's Oyster Bar, 964 Farmington
Ave., West Hartford
Why the fuss over
fishing? Although fish cannot always express pain and
suffering in ways that humans easily recognize, marine biologists assure us
that fish do indeed feel pain. Farmed aquatic animals also suffer from stress,
infections, and parasites as a result of crowded, filthy, and unnatural living
conditions. Many animals dragged out of oceans in huge nets (along with
unintended victims, such as dolphins, turtles, seals, and others) slowly
suffocate or are crushed to death. The others are often still alive when their
throats and bellies are cut open.
Another reason to forgo eating fish? Fish are caught and killed by the
billions for their flesh, but many of them exact a little revenge: According to
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 325,000 people get sick and
many die each year from eating contaminated seafood. Fish flesh often contains
toxic levels of mercury and PCBs, chemicals that have been linked to many kinds
fish is neither healthy nor humane," says PETA Campaign Specialist Ashley
Byrne. "When you 'see food,' please choose vegan!"
