The Cruel and Illegal Practice of India’s Fish Industry
Animal Equality exposed the abuses and crimes of India’s fishery and aquaculture sector and showed the inefficient use of precious resources, like water and land. The cycle of cruelty seems to never end, with our team witnessing fish suffering in a variety of ways. One particularly brutal practice is “fish milking,” an extremely painful process in which the eggs from a female fish are squeezed out by hand. In another, farmed fish are killed by asphyxiation as workers pull them from the water and put them on ice to slowly and agonizingly suffocate to death.
