New research page on fish
Category : Uncategorized
We’ve just published a new page on our website entirely about the suffering of fish and other animals we consider “seafood”.
Exactly how many wild caught fish do we consume (either directly, or as fishmeal) every year? …using the reported tonnage of caught species, and dividing by the average weight of each species, author Alison Mood has estimated the annual global capture of wild fish at one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) and possibly as high as 2.7 trillion (2,700,000,000,000). This does not even account for the number of fish caught illegally or as bycatch.
