Fish are smart
Dolphins and whales
Two of the smartest animals
Are fish

They recognize each other
They communicate
They grieve the loss of companions
They make art in the sand to attract mates

They have pain receptors
And feel pain acutely

When they are caught on a hook
They thrash around wildly
Because they are in great pain
And they are suffocating
And they are in a state of panic

Catch and release
Cuts their mouths and jaw and even their eyes
These injuries usually just lead to a slow death

Spirituality is being aware of other species
Beyond your own
And to demand fair treatment for all!
