Fish can feel pain acutely. When a hook is in their jaw they feel even more intensely what we would feel if a hook was in our jaw. When they are skinned alive they feel unbelievable pain just as we would if we were skinned alive. When a fish is out of the water he or she will suffocate to death just like we would die gasping for air when drowning. The world will take a giant step forward when no fishing is ever allowed!
