This is a great topic - I'll move it over to the Lounge.

I personally have no problem eating fish, but I have more trouble cleaning caught fish now than I used to. :|

I think you mean meat, dairy, and eggs. So vegetarians are fine I was a vegetarian for 8 years. I grew up around ranchers, and my grandparents had a cattle ranch for 40 years.

I wouldn't eat it if I had to kill the animal, unless I was in a survival situation, especially because there are a lot of different food options other than meat. However, even though I stopped eating meat the meat processing plants will keep operating because there is a demand for meat. So for me, the meat is already prepared, the animal died and in a very short amount of time if the meat isn't eaten it will spoil and go to waste meaning an animal was killed for no reason at all.
This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. If you and others stopped eating meat the demand, and thus profit would decrease. Then less animals would be reared for food and less would go to slaughter for human consumption. This would also affect land use. You're pretty directly involved in the slaughter since you're money demands it. Just because your plastic wrapped meat scarcely resembles an animal doesn't mean it wasn't one and that you don't play a huge part, so don't kid yourself, heh.

Rather than stop eating meat I think it's more important to try to get organic meat, which is what all food was throughout history until recent days. Keep the hormone and crap out of your system and out of the environment. Then for the animals sake, don't buy from companies who don't practice humane ranching, slaughter, etc.

BTW, sushi makes life worth living! Mmm

I catch fish at my cottage all the time.... But Only if they are REALLY REALLY REALLY good do i keep them. I still have so much guilt and trouble clubbing the fish when i go to clean it. But i think "i'm GOING to eat it" its the more humane thing to do before you clean the fish. My Friends folks don't bother clubbing it. Its horrible and i cant watch it when the clean it. Poor fish.

I haven't been fishing in YEARS but my dad is going to take me out with him one of these days. I am really excited because I used to love fishing when I was young. I think so long as I can remember that I wont be bringing the salmon home with me to keep as my pet, I will be fine. I would have a hard time raising fish as food though, having to feed them and take care of them every day. Which reminds me of when I lived on a small ranch when I was younger, and we had probably 20 chickens or more. My mom and dad decided to see what the meat was like. We do eat meat, but my dad said he would NEVER kill another chicken himself again. They were our pets, and you should never eat your pets.

Personally, I love tamarind-seasoned whole tilapia - grilled while wrapped in a banana leaf to keep it moist. Yum!
Qtoffer, where do you get banana leafs like that??? This recipe sounds intriguing...I cook tilapia frequently. Can you PM me the details?

That sounds incredibly good! Are you by any chance Puerto Rican? It sounds like it could be a Puerto Rican dish.

I look at it as I'm not keeping tilapia, halibut, salmon, etc. I'm not about to eat a parrot fish, or a pleco, anything like that.
I definatly couldn't eat an animal I knew, or animals I have owned (no bunnies on my plate).

It's actually Malaysian/Thai.

I have some friends who used to have 2 cows. Then one day the husband decided to kill them because he wanted to see what the meat was like (same thing like the chicken only he killed both cows that they had) When he cooked the steak for dinner he asked her whether she wanted Steve or Fred. She ran off crying and has been a vegitarian ever since. My uncle went to a country (a long time ago, I don't remember which one) and went to a fish market there where the fish were still living and you'd choose the one you wanted and they'd take it and kill it so you'd have the freshest meat possible. He brought containers and asked them if they could keep the fish alive in the containers (of course there was water in them) and took a couple home for his aquarium. They were beautiful tropical fish.
