Facts you didn't Know About Fishes and other Marine Animals

Unfortunately, fishes and other marine animals don't seem to generate a lot of empathy among humans. Perhaps it's because we can't hear their voices or because they live under-water. Maybe it's just because they look so different from us. Whatever the reasons for our lack of empathy for sea animals, they clearly don't justify our harmful actions.

Fishes and other sea animals who are kept inside farms suffer from boredom, pain, distress, disease and even depression. Aquatic animal farms are highly crowded and don't offer any of the stimulation or interest these animals would have in the wild. Fish farms are basically just crowded tanks or cages, filled with nothing but water. No vegetation, no rocks, no space to move and explore or participate in any meaningful and natural activity.

Wild sea animals who are captured by gigantic fishing nets may have had a better life, but once they are captured, they experience absolute torture. These animals are often dragged from the depths of the ocean, which causes an intense pressure resulting in damage to their organs such as their eyes which can become detached from the body.

In addition to this, once inside the fishing net, the animals start to slowly suffocate and panic starts to kick in. Thousands of frantic animals desperately trying to escape, but they can't. This experience is one of pure terror. Many will not be killed on board so that their flesh remains as fresh as possible. These animals will continue to be transported and kept in the most horrible conditions. Some will even be kept alive inside ice buckets before reaching their violent end.

This eye-opening video, produced for World Day for the End of Fishing, allows us to understand fishes and sea animals better and may get some of us to re-examine whether we want to support and fund the industries that hurt them.

In order to help more animals escape a fate of misery, try to be vegan for 22 days! We highly recommend to join Challenge 22+ for both free guidance and support.
