in this day and age I don't think there's any need for us to eat our own fish. After all, you wouldn't eat your dog or cat, why would you want your fish? Even if it died you really wouldn't want to eat it, it would either be tasteless because of his age, or it could even make you ill if it died because of a disease.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

thats a funny little article ... actually it was rather long lol!

any way I never thought about the meds being bad for us that we give the fish!

But I mean I could see having a fish fry with a RTC or a large pangus! if you could raise it up clean for a few years then have it as a feast lol...


but Im not eating OZ (even thought oscars are food fish) he will be stuffed and mounted .... ;)

this all boils down about the purpose of keeping fish or what ever pets do you have in mind?
i started keeping fish for food thus i don't have any qualms taking them down whenever they
attain a a good size..... though lately, i stop doing that... plus if you had applied med with your
fish, surely you will have a second thought to do so as Penn had said...

in my country, far north of Luzon, they prefer to raised dogs instead of lamb and goat for meat...
unfortunately, our legislators passed a law making it a crime butchering dog....

Fish are food(although I won't eat fish I raise). Dogs are not food. They are sheperds of our flocks, protectors of us & our children, guides for the disabled, hunters of game, & loyal companions(a helluva lot more loyal than people). NOT food. Eating dog is an unnecessary & barbaric practice & rightfully outlawed, & those who participate in this revolting practice should be strung up by their short-hairs.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

I agree with everything you said. I have had two great dogs in my life that I would have killed for. They were more than a pet, but my family and to this day I still love them dearly although they are gone. One of those dogs saved my life. I am forever grateful for her.

No i could never eat my fish they are a pet to me like all the other animals in my house

I agree with Jack's statement completely but it's the culture we are raised in, everyone needs to keep in mind that we are a forum made up of many cultures that have differing ways and we need to respect that. There are cultures out there that cringe at the thought of eating cows like we cringe about dogs and cats.

The ban on eating cows is a religious requirement. (I believe most Hindu's are vegetarian) Eating dog is a conscious choice. Dogfighting is part of many culture's, but does that make that acceptable or civilized? Eating dog is not part of what a civilized society does or condones, which is why most of the countries where this is practiced have banned it.

Who are we to dictate or judge other countries or cultures ?
A lot of what you eat depends on where you grow up what you are used to. There is some very questionable food items on menus all over the world. Its not my place to judge.
You eat whats available and I think we would all do whatever is neccessary to take care of our families.
Its easy to point fingers at other places when you have pretty much anything you could ever want available around the corner at a store.
I dont have to agree with everything that goes on around the world , just like other countries dont have to agree with what goes on here. Hell , look at balut. I doubt any of us agree with that either.
What about poverty stricken countries where you are lucky to even have clean running water .
One could argue that how they kill cats and dogs for consumption is barbaric , but lets be honest , if we saw what really goes on in some of those slaughter houses around here we would not be eating beef.
We take no offense to other countries eating beef , pork and chicken. We do however seem to be more sensible about them eating animals that we keep as pets like dogs , cats and even horses.

But back to the original question...would I eat my fish ? I dont think so , those fish are like family. If however one of my kids needed some sort of protein to survive and that fish is all I have...damn right he will go on the grill.
