In Defense of Animals Works to Protect Fish

Fish are the planet’s most widely abused animals, but their suffering receives the least attention. Trillions of fish are exploited and killed every year in the food industry, the pet trade, and laboratories. Science is increasingly revealing that fish are intelligent, emotional beings, and has proven that fish feel pain, yet they are rarely protected by animal welfare legislation. 

In Defense of Animals aims to change this through outreach and advocacy campaigns which demonstrate to the public and policymakers that fish are deserving of the same level of compassion and protection granted to any other animal.
