  1. So many great points here. There is nothing ethical about fishing. An individual that catches and eats a fish is unnecessarily taking a life. Commercial fishing is also destroying our oceans, which in turn is destroying our planet. Sadly, it’s all about money. Thankfully more and more people are becoming vegan, reducing the demand for seafood as well as the demand for meat from land animals. Companies long known for killing animals are beginning to see the writing on the wall and are beginning to market vegan products because they see a growing market. Years ago a mayonnaise producer in the US sued another company that was making vegan mayonnaise because they called their product ‘mayo’. To make a long story a bit shorter, the suit was eventually dismissed, and fast forward a bit…today the company that brought the suit is now making their own version of vegan mayonnaise. There are innovative companies now making vegan “seafood” that have all the taste and texture with none of the cruelty, toxic chemicals, and environmental damage. As the demand grows, prices will come down and current seafood companies will begin to jump on the bandwagon, just as is happening for meat from land animals.

  2. very insightful! I still love salmon though, and will wean off my habit of eating the stuff using nicotine patches over the next 2 years!

  3. I think sea animals are the first that need to be protected. As a vegan, I am often surprised about how hard is to find multivitamins that are not made with animal products. I personally use Terraseeds vitamins, they use ZERO animal products and no plastic.
