This is an excellent interview with Sylvia Earle, renowned marine biologist and pioneering oceanographer, who explains her decision of not eating fish – one she made 40 years ago. She refers to fish as sentient beings, who are no different than wildlife on land, and she emphasizes on the pollution in the oceans and the havoc industrial fishing is creating in most fish populations.
Fish are sentient creatures. They feel, suffer, and avoid pain and death as much as possible, just like us or other land animals.
Humanity is decimating fish species at unimaginable rates! Unless we take a stand and choose to eat compassionately and sustainably, fish simply don’t stand a chance.
