Vicky Bond, Managing Director of The Humane League UK, discusses how we can tackle fish farming

Sometimes, it would seem as though they are from another world. Fish don’t look like us, don’t act like us, and certainly don’t sound like us. Since, to us, they appear devoid of expression, people often assume they are incapable of feeling.

Indeed, despite science to the contrary, many still claim that fish can’t feel pain. Their brains are wired in such a way that some argue they simply can’t be sentient. For them, they are vegetables of the sea, at our disposal to be exploited at leisure.

This is undoubtedly part of the reason why the industry has grown to be so big: it plays little on our collective conscience. It would probably shock most people to find out that fish account for nearly 97 per cent of all animals slaughtered for food globally.

The number of wild-caught and farmed fish produced within the fishing industry make that of land animals pale in comparison. And it’s still growing. In fact, it’s the fastest growing form of agriculture in the world.

About Vegan Life

It’s the most wonderful time of the year which means dark nights and crisp cold days, rich cinnamon-infused foods and, in my house, Miracle on 34th Street on repeat. I turn into that annoying person that most people hate at Christmas. I start listening to carols in early November, wearing ridiculous jumpers and get myself into a state of overexcitement for the entirety of December leading to near exhaustion by Christmas Eve. Combining my passions for Christmas and veganism for the December issue of Vegan Life, therefore, has been immensely satisfying for me and it should be just as satisfying for you because we have a bumper issue! This month we have made Vegan Life even bigger (and better) with 122 pages full of your favourite regulars as well as interviews, news and the best vegan recipes around. These extra pages give you the perfect excuse to curl up in a chair just a little longer and have some you-time to read and escape the ever-so-slightly-manic Christmas hysteria. In a whistle stop tour of the magazine we have; an interview with Ingrid Kirkman, founder of PETA; Fat Gay Vegan on shopping at independents; an article on the importance of iodine in our diets and an excellent travel section focusing on the vegan scene in Brazil. Finally, I want to share some very exciting news from Vegan Life HQ. As some of you may know we were nominated for the Best Vegan Magazine by the VegFest UK Awards and… we won! I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for Vegan Life and to those who read the magazine. We count ourselves incredibly lucky to have such a loyal readership who are so supportive of what we do. Vegan Life was founded, and is still run, by a team of vegans passionate about making a change in the world. We are seeing the start of that change and we will be with you every step of the way into the future. For now, enjoy the festive period and we will see you in the new year.
