Well done to those residents who tried to save fishes that were dying in the local canal.
Also to the Canal and River Trust, who made efforts to aerate the water to prevent further deaths. 

One wonders, however, how many of those same people, through their eating habits, are responsible for the  suffering and deaths of other fishes who are just as sensitive and aware as the ones they sought to save.

In addition, if the high water temperatures that caused the deaths of the fishes in the canal are the result of global heating, as is probably the case, we need to remember that the fishing industry bears a greater responsibility for climate change than all of aviation.

There’s no need for fishes to be caught and killed for food, as we can all live healthily without consuming them or any other animals or animal products.

Thankfully, an increasing number of people are becoming vegan and ending their consumption of meat, fish, eggs and dairy, out of concern for the animals, the environment

or their own health.
