If it makes you feel better, even people now (even if it is for the sake of money) use every part of the animal.. Like bone meal for chicken feed, leather for bags and stuff, organs are sweet breads and meat is eaten.. I understand how badly you feel, it is disturbing, especially to see a fish like that.. I understand what you mean about respect too.. In India the cow is worshiped because it used to be a source of everything for the Aryans, food (although they don't eat it anymore.. Religion gets warped through the ages :/) milk, cloth etc.. I guess respect is one thing we should give these animals, you're right.. That's the least we can do. :)
