THE DEADLY FISH INDUSTRY

The deaths of fish are in such large numbers that they can't be counted and are measured in tonnes.

UNDERWATER SUFFERING


Fish often live in complex social groups, they use tools, and exhibit signs of anxiety and pain. However, fish are treated like commodities by the fishing industry.


“Most of the fish eaten in the world today are raised in land or ocean-based aquafarms. India is the second largest country in aquaculture production and one of the largest exporters of fish globally. The share of inland fisheries and aquaculture has gone up from 46 percent in the 1980s to over 85 percent in recent years in total fish production.”

CRUEL SLAUGHTER


“In India, fish farmed for food are not covered by the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. This results in a wide variety of cruel slaughter methods dependent on industry, company, and species.

Fish are usually removed from the water and left to suffocate and die. They desperately attempt to escape as their gills collapse preventing them from being able to breathe. “
