Re: [APD] Disposing of Unwanted Fish

According to the latest research, the limbic system is where we feel whether
something is agreeable or disagreeable, i.e. "good or bad."   It's also the
location of emotionally charged memories.  Fish have limbic systems, though
not quite as developed as in mammals.  Parameciums, earth worms, mushrooms
etc do not.

You can draw your own conclusions, but it seems very likely that fish do
'feel' fear (an emotion), let alone pain (a sensation) which as Jerry says
is just a response to stimulus.  There's been a lot of research on animal
emotions in the last 10 years and the conclusions are pretty amazing.
