I have been vegetarian for at least 12 years. This includes all meat and anything that would be a byproduct of killing animals (such as geletin) or animal tested products.
I'm thinking about going pescetarian mainly for health but also because I have been sorely disappointed by options out there. I get really angry when hungry and have had too many situations where I go to a restaurant and there is no option for me!
I'm just belaboring over the decision and need guidance. I'm thinking I might have a really hard time eating fish as it is still a dead animal. How/why did any of you choose to eat fish rather than other animals? Are any of you pescetarian for compassionate reasons rather than health reasons? I guess I'm hoping for some info on whether or not fish are killed in a cruel way or if fish can even sense what is happening. I mean, a goldfish is supposed to have like a 3 second memory, is that true? I think I could feel less guilty about eating fish if I knew that I wasn't hurting something . . .
