How Fish Feel Pain
Oxford University Press has just released Do Fish Feel Pain?, which can be purchased as a PDF through eBooks.com or as a physical book through online retailers.
This multifaceted book explores recent scientific research of whether or not fish can experience pain but also explores human behavior in our relationship to and perception of fish.
We can no longer overlook mounting evidence that fish feel pain and suffer. To avoid eating mammalian flesh for ethical or moral reasons grounded in currently available evidence (that they suffer) requires including fish because evidence now shows that they, too, suffer violence because of their neurological capacities to organize sensation in complex bundles.
