"fish are friends, not food"

So, do any of you fishie people still partake in the occasional (or often) flavoring of any kind of seafood? I find it very funny that I am just about as close to being a vegan as you can be without being one, yet I still occasionally eat fish (once every several months). It just tastes so good. I feel bad after I do, as I would with any animal based food, but I can't help it. My favorite is trout. *waters at the mouth*

I'm sorry, my fish friends! I really am!

Man...I used to eat fish in front of my bettas when they were in my livingroom. lol

I can seperate food animals from pet animals in my head very easily. I wouldn't go around killing animals, but I don't consider butchering animals for a meat store to be the same as shooting puppies. I am an unbalanced omnivore who leans more healing towards veggies and poltury because it's healthier. I've never been able to relate to feeling guilty for eating meat.

I've never felt the urge to apologize to my bettas for eating tilapia since they eat fish too (see the ingredients for NLS betta pelets). XD

Haha fair enough. I think it all started with me because my dad was and is a hunter and I've always had a guilty conscious when it comes to eating meat myself, though I never try to push it on someone else like other people tend to do.

if you look at their species personalities, most fish that are commonly eaten are jerks, so i don't see any problem with it. (kinda like how i'll eat squid but not octopus, since squid are much more mean-spirited, whereas octopuses are kinda like the puppies of the sea.)

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

The Ocean is not the cleanest place. I find Squid Adorible. Look at Tuna there population is rapidly decreasing. The BP oil spill really hurt one of there breeding grounds.

Love shrimp(: my grandma makes the best shrimp stew, it's to die for (roux, potatoes and hand-peeled shrimp over rice...yum). Fried shrimp is good too(;
But as for fish fish....I would much rather prefer to eat chicken. Sometimes we will break out the deep-fryer and get some tilapia to fry...again, yum. My grandma makes fried catfish sometimes. Other than that, every other fish seems to always taste fishy (like that yucky fish taste). My family is Louisiana-based to they fry up everything haha
