Subject: Activists want fish off aquarium menu

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An animal rights group has called on one of
the largest aquariums in the United States to stop serving fish to
its visitors, likening the practice to grilling up "poodle burgers-in-
a dog show."
"It's easy to think of fish as swimming vegetables but of all the
places in the country where fish should get a fair shake it's an
aquarium," said Karin Robertson, manager of the Fish Empathy Project
for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Robertson sent a letter to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach,
near Los Angeles, asking directors to take fish off the cafeteria
lunch menu, adding: "Serving fish-in-an aquarium is like serving
poodle burgers-in-a dog show."
She said that recent studies show that fish are
surprisingly "intelligent, sensitive and interesting animals" and
that the aquarium was contradicting that message by cooking them for
lunch.
Jerry Schubel, aquarium president, said in a statement that the
facility served only sustainable and environmentally friendly fish
and was committed to educating the public about conserving ocean
environments.

Best Wishes !

WARREN
