Do Fish Feel Pain?

Braithwaite, Victoria

This multifaceted book explores recent scientific research of whether or not fish can experience pain but also explores human behavior in our relationship to and perception of fish.

We can no longer overlook mounting evidence that fish feel pain and suffer. To avoid eating mammalian flesh for ethical or moral reasons grounded in currently available evidence (that they suffer) requires including fish because evidence now shows that they, too, suffer violence because of their neurological capacities to organize sensation in complex bundles.
