“What a Fish Knows draws on the latest science to present a fresh look at these remarkable creatures in all their breathtaking diversity and beauty. Fishes conduct elaborate courtship rituals and develop lifelong bonds with shoalmates. They also plan, hunt cooperatively, use tools, curry favor, deceive one another, and punish wrongdoers. We may imagine that fishes lead simple, fleeting lives―a mode of existence that boils down to a place on the food chain, rote spawning, and lots of aimless swimming. But, as author Jonathan Balcombe demonstrates, the truth is far richer and more complex, worthy of the grandest social novel.”
Please research overfishing and bycatch then you will know the injustice you are supporting when you consume any fish product.
Not only do fish feel pain but in addition to causing them immense suffering, we are decimating significant (non-target species aka bycatch) marine life populations to provide for our enormous appetites.
Dedicated to Anita Krajnc of Toronto Pig Save standing tial on 24th August for the crime of giving water to dehydrated pigs on their way to the slaughterhouse.
“There is good scientific evidence to suggest we need to rethink our overall relationship to them”
Renowned neuroscientist Lori Marino
An oink is not just an oink, and a grunt not just a grunt. It seems from a new study by the University of Lincoln that just like us, pigs have quite a lot to say for themselves, which will come as no surprise to those lucky people who get to rub shoulders with piggy buddies. Or to the rest of us who call nonhuman animals our friends and equals.
As usual, science is catching up with what we instinctively knew already. But the research into pigs’ language is great news because it adds yet another to the fast-growing tally of studies…
