You can't always find people to take fish off your hands, even for free.

As for situations like Hukit's. When you run a breeding room, you do have to cull out any defects.

I don't run a huge breeding operation, just a few different things here and there, but even I have to cull out defects. Yes, I hate it, but it is my responsibility to make sure that only the best quality genes get into other people's tanks.

It's the sad, but honest truth.

As long as it's done in a humane way I don't see any issues personally. I use a somewhat barbaric method involving a dead blow hammer but I will also incorporate clove oil when I have that on hand which acts like high dosage of anesthesia.
Dog breeders do cull puppies as well. Personally I think humans should be culled too, but hey...

And culling is very important aspect of fish keeping breeders do it all the time! Like mention above bad fry(birth defects) is the biggest reason why. You don't want someone purchasing that and breeding it. Also I don't agree with taking in defected fish as it gives a bad rep.

Personally the best way to cull fish is either with clove oil or temperature shock. I personally use temperature shock the most.

Bumping was used for many animals especially in pig farmers it is something that needs to be done with every animal in every situation.

I'm aware but that's not something I could do. Here is another one people won't agree with but I was a Ranger in the Army and I'd rather put down a enemy over putting down a puppy or even worse a kitty!!!

No, I don't think it would be ethical to euthanize perfectly healthy fish. I would say that you should try to give them away for free, but I don't think you should euthanize them, it just seems like a cruel thing to do, and I personally would never do tht to a perfectly healthy fish.
