Farm Fishes

Farm Fishes

A good amount of fishes consumed for food are raised on aquafarms. Farmed fish spend their entire lives in crowded, filthy enclosures, and many suffer from parasitic infections, diseases, and debilitating injuries. Conditions on some farms are so horrendous that many fishes may die before farmers can kill and package them for food. Fishes that survive are commonly starved before they are sent to slaughter in order to reduce waste contamination of the water during transport. Salmon, for example, are starved for up to 10 full days. Also, fishes are most often gutted alive. Their head stays on, among other reasons, to be able to fully measure the fish to be sure it is of legal size.
