Would you feed a cow a pork chop to cure it of constipation?
^sorry if that's sassy, it seems to be the simplest comparison
Foods that are harsh on a digestive system may indeed lead to a desired result, but that does not make them the best choice of treatment.
Another non-fish comparison: I used to eat carrots to clear me out, thinking "this is great bulking fiber, I poop so much!" Turns out I am badly allergic to carrots and the clearing out of my digestive system was actually a reaction to the food, leading to further digestive issues.
If you can't digest it properly, don't eat it :)
I want to look up more scientific explanations haha. The pea argument is still ongoing in most online communities. If the daphnia solution is there - I would say why use the pea?
