Re: [APD] Disposing of Unwanted Fish

And no one has yet voiced any concern for the plants from which we regularly tear body parts and sometimes mercilessly commit to oblivion.

Well, I think I did invite folks over for shrimp cocktails.   
Followed, of course by steamed clams and boiled lobster.  I know for  
a fact that I would endure some pain if I were one of the shrimp,  
clams or lobsters who were committed to the meal.  Now I don't agree  
with anyone who would intentionally torture their fish or other  
livestock, but to seek out painless ways to kill sick or injured fish  
or livestock does make me wonder about the preparation of shrimp,  
clams, lobster, mussels, scallops, sardines, etc.  I'm just saying we  
need to view this in context of our general lifestyle, which for many  
of us, includes eating cousins of the very creatures we treasure in  
our tanks.  Oh, who wants some cherrystone clams as an appetizer?
