DON’T EAT THEM
To state the obvious, the best way to help fish is to not eat them.
STILL DON’T EAT THEM
If you don’t want to stop eating fish, then all we can offer you is this: overfishing has all but decimated global fish stocks. At the very least, everyone should stop eating them in order to give them a chance to recover. That, surely, is the least we can do.
Speak out. Use your voice. Express your opinion. Talk to your family. Talk to your friends. Ask them to stop eating fish. Talk to the manager of your local supermarket. Talk to the owner of your local restaurants and cafes. Always ask where the fish you are about to buy came from. Is it wild-caught, or is it from a fish farm? If it’s from a fish farm, order something else.
Lobby your local political representatives. Ring them up. Email them. Call to see them at their weekly clinic. Be polite, be insistent, be passionate. Don’t let them fob you off. Use your social media platforms to share posts from animal rights organisations.
Join an animal rights organisation (see LINKS on this website). If there isn’t a local campaigning group in your town or locality, ask one of the animal rights or animal welfare organisations if you can do some campaigning on their behalf. Most groups will be delighted to hear from you.
BE RESOLUTE, BE STRONG
Finally, be resolute and be strong. The fish have no voice (or none that we can hear). Let your compassionate, passionate voice be theirs!
