AW: Fish can't feel pain ?
this sounds to me like one psychiatrist who diagnosed Jesus Christ as
mentally deranged almost 2000 years after death (for real).
If you look at a fish who has an infected wound, he will even go as far as
to twist his body away from that side which is sore. Take that same fish out
of the water and put some iodine tincture on it. He will start jumping
around, even if he was not before. That is observing the obvious.
You see that the animal has pain. It is as simple as that. It is pretty far
off to notice that that part of the brain which is known to register pain
with other animals isn't existing and to conclude that the animal does not
register pain. It is rejecting what you have seen as untrue, sort of saying
it was a fata-morgana.
Thoughts concerning that the perceptions of pain by fish will differ from
ours would be reasonable.
