The screams of the fish-we hear them

Fish don’t audibly scream when they’re impaled on hooks or grimace when the hooks are ripped from their mouths, but their behavior offers evidence of their suffering—if we’re willing to look.

Biologist Victoria Braithwaite says that “there is as much evidence that fish feel pain and suffer as there is for birds and mammals.”

For example, when Braithwaite and her colleagues exposed fish to irritating chemicals, the animals behaved as any of us might: They lost their appetite, their gills beat faster, and they rubbed the affected areas against the side of the tank.

It is hard to imagine that swallowing a bait with a fish hook in it does not feel extremely painful.
The fish also shows a terrible fidget in the video in response.


Neurobiologists have long recognized that fish have nervous systems that comprehend and respond to pain.

Even though fish don’t have the same brain structures that humans do—fish do not have a neocortex, for example—Dr. Ian Duncan reminds us that we “have to look at behavior and physiology,” not just anatomy. “It’s possible for a brain to evolve in different ways,” he says.

“That’s what is happening in the fish line. It’s evolved in some other ways in other parts of the brain to receive pain.”

And I mean…For a long time, it was said that fish had no nerves in the oral cavity and generally felt little or no pain.
But according to the latest research, this groundless belief is over.

As Dr. Lynne Sneddon from Liverpool University reported a year ago in the journal “Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B” (DOI: 10.1098 / rstb.2019.0290) that a lot of fish can feel pain – also and especially in the mouth.

It does not matter whether a fish “only” feels pain or whether it also associates an “emotion” with it.

As long as there is even the possibility that it is so (and it is highly likely), it is ethically and morally unjustifiable to subject an animal to torture purely out of ignorance and only for one’s own (useless) gain.

Humans can only afford this discussion because they are the stronger ones in the pack. Unfortunately, the “ethics of the ruler” were not only practiced by the inhabitants of Germany a few years ago.

That should be enough of a warning to never again invoke the right of the strongest for your own benefit.

Fish feel pain. And the human species is what causes it

Therefore: do not fish, do not eat any fish.


My best regards to all, Venus
