Our ally Animal Equality just released the results of its undercover investigation of the US fish industry!
The slaughterhouse that Animal Equality investigated supplies several large grocery stores in the US. The report documents terrible abuse, including catfish regularly left out of water to slowly suffocate and endure painful deaths while conscious. Investigators also found that turtles and other “unwanted” fish who had been caught up in the fish farm’s nets were set on a conveyor belt to be ground up alive and, according to one employee, used as feed.
“If one pig were killed in this manner, the slaughterhouse would be shut down,” said Sean Thomas, international director of investigations for Animal Equality.
Fish have nervous systems and can detect pain!
