There are so many reasons not to eat fish. There’s the fact that scientists know that fish do indeed feel pain, not to mention the toxic fish flesh that you’d be ingesting, the horrifying ways in which fish are caught and killed, the destructive environmental impact, and the fact that fish are more intelligent than we ever knew. Thankfully, there are so many ways to get the taste of the sea without harming animals. Vegan seafood options are plentiful, and brands are creating new and innovative options every day. It’s also super-simple to use staple foods like tofu, chickpeas, carrots, and others to create flavorful vegan fish recipes.

Billions of fish and shellfish are killed for food each year in the U.S. alone. They are intelligent, complex animals who don’t want to be taken from their homes and killed to satisfy a human’s fleeting desire. When you go vegan, you help these animals—and all others—by standing up for their rights and respecting them as individuals. Learn more about ways to help fish:
