Monkey Nuggets

from the July, 2016 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

I find it unsettling to be sitting on the veranda of a dive resort, overlooking the house reef, and be handed a menu highlighting "fresh local" grouper or snapper or octopus. I find it just as annoying to have the same options at a publicly funded aquarium. PETA seems to agree. Fish at a Queensland, Australia, aquarium are not only swimming in the water, but in buttery sauces at its cafe, says PETA, prompting the animal rights group, on World Ocean Day, to ask for seafood to be taken off the menu. "After allowing people to look at these glorious, fascinating animals in awe, it's rather odd that you then invite visitors to stick a fork in them . . . Serving fish at an aquarium is like serving monkey nuggets at a zoo."
