I sometimes eat fish in front of my tank to remind my reef fish just how good they have it. LOL JK

...but I really do eat fish. I love seafood!

No allergic, and they stick in the throat.
When ever I feel bad I let the crab eat a little of me.

Ever since getting into the hobby I have been wondering how many of us fish keepers do -- or not eat fish.



I have been a pescatarian for the last 7 years. IE, a diet with fish but no meat consumption.
This because of environmental, ethical and empathical reasoning.
When I started planning my first tank / watched Seaspircacy, I became a full vegetarian.
I guess I was too distanced away from fishes to really think my own hypocrisy through.

(But then again, having fish / corals myself is (perhaps) another irony itself. It never ends haha.)

I'm really interested what stand / opinion the R2R population has towards the subject.
Feel free to elaborate your view.
There is no wrong or right answer. This thread isn't about projecting <x> views / ideology on <y>.
Everyone does what everyone does.
I have stopped fishing as I think humans underestimate the perception of other life forms. I imagine fish as having some fraction of consciousness.

I used to hit the spring walleye run in Canada with my grandfathers.

We would bury ourselves in the bush for a week with just enough supplies to survive. You had to catch fish to fill up.

3 hour old walley lightly battered and pan fried will turn any hardcore vegan into a carnivore instantly. Its that good. No restraunt I've been to can come close to fresh river caught walleye. I actually prefer Northern pike a bit over walleye but they are a pain to fillet. Mama ducks appreciate you catching pike....bent a lot of hooks though. Strong fish .

As long as the fishing is properly regulated and sustained I'm all for it.

I do eat fish. I didn't when I was younger. My dad who was a diver said he made a deal with the fish that if he didn't eat them they wouldn't eat him and I thought that was cool.
Than I tried some salmon that wasn't cooked well. All dried out.
Later I tried some of mom's catfish at a Louffi's and loved it. Mostly just salmon, tuilappia and catfish.

On this planet its eat or be eaten!
Swim in the wrong spot in the ocean and you will be eaten.
With that said. I would rather eat fish I caught or animals I shot than store bought.
