Where I used to live in the cities, my local multi- national market, sells snakeskin gourami in the frozen food section! Well I'm not disgusted just that The gourami fish are one of my fav type of fw fish. I was shocked that these awesome fish are consumable.
I remember picking one up that was packed up and frozen and was looking at it and said to myself, oh u poor fish, I have one alive at home now in my 10 gal!

I don't find it to be that wrong. I kinda relate the Gourami family with Asia like I think of Sunfish and the U.S. Some people keep fish from these families in aquaria, but they also eat them!

i'm not surprised either. people eat what's around them, and in their case it just so happens to be something owned here lol. it's kind of like how nobody in the US would ever think of eating a guinea pig, yet they are a staple in a lot of places.

Sometimes I think like that too. But when I think about what I feed them, it destroys the taste buds. It'd be almost like eating he fish food itself. Well that's how I think.

I see them everywhere in stores too.
I think it's more sad to see them live being sold.

Same thing with Oscars, they are a food fish in SA. Oscars are an invasive species here in Florida as well and are currently the #2 most popular freshwater game fish.
