I'm a vegetarian and have been most of my life (and no, vegetarians don't eat fish. Pesceatarians (I can't spell it! >w< oops!) eat fish.) So...no I don't! : ) But it has nothing to do with keeping them as pets.

I'm a meat-a-tarian so yeah I eat some fish. I stick to white type fish like catfish, and cod and polliak(?). I'm not a big fan of fishy tasting fish like salmon. I tried orange roughy once.. I didn't like it because it had a fishy taste, then I learned about them and cried.

Because of that I only eat those three fish. I however adore crayfish, lobster, crab, and shrimp. YUM!!!! My bettas agree with me on shrimp being tasty too, they eat them within a few days of me putting any in their tanks.... They just like them raw, rather then cooked in sauce. :D

My owning fish hasn't changed my eating habits. (no offense to vegetarians and whatnot, i've just always been a picky eater. I found some of it is because of allergies to odd groups of vegetables and plants.)

Personally I love the taste of fish. Salmon is also very healthy and I know how to cook it, too! I would also miss the taste of sushi too much. Salmon and tuna sushi is just so yummy! I used to be an avid vegetarian but I think the best I can do now is pescatarian. I don't want to give up fish again.

I stopped eating fish long before I got my first betta because I don't like the way fish tastes. My family still eats fish when I'm around sometimes, and it bothers me a little bit, but I don't really see salmon or tuna at the same level as betta fish. After all, my bettas' food has seafood in it so they basically eat fish,too.

I can't stand the smell and taste of fish. I've never liked fish much anyway, except for smoked fish, but since I've been keeping them as pets I can't help thinking of them as living things and not something you should eat.
I'm a vegetarian now due to stomach problems so I can't eat fish anyway.

Nope. Its perfectly legal to slaughter and eat horse. Its only illigal to slaughter and sell it. You can use it in your own house hold but not for profit.
