PETA's campaign to rename fish 'sea kittens'

By Cathy Alexander | January 09, 2009

A CAMPAIGN to rename fish as "sea kittens" in order to improve their image has been ridiculed by the Federal Opposition.

Outspoken animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is using the "sea kitten" name as part of its push to restrict fishing.

"Nobody would hurt a sea kitten!" the group says on its website.

"People don't seem to like fish.

"We're going to start by retiring the old name for good.

"When your name can also be used as a verb that means driving a hook through your head, it's time for a serious image makeover."

The website features images of fish with cats' whiskers and ears.

PETA is using the campaign to entice people to sign a petition calling on the US Fish and Wildlife Service to stop promoting "the hunting of sea kittens (otherwise known as fishing)".

Opposition fisheries spokesman John Cobb was not impressed with the campaign, nor with PETA.

PETA has offended some in Australia with is high-profile campaign against mulesing, the practice of cutting away the skin from a sheep's rear to prevent flystrike.

Mr Cobb said the group had little credibility.

"It is hard to take an organisation which wants to change the name of fish seriously," he said.

Many people might laugh at the sea kitten campaign, Mr Cobb said, but PETA's agenda was actually more sinister: destroying the meat and fish industries.

PETA has convinced a number of large companies to boycott Australian wool which comes from mulesed flocks.   The group argues mulesing is cruel and there are better ways to prevent flystrike.

After reading that, I have a "hankerin" for a nice big Trout, grilled on the BBQ and served with just a touch of lemon.

"SEA KITTEN?!!!"  Whacko

 
If it weren't for the fact this is from PETA, the same organization who lobbied for Ben & Jerry's to start using human milk instead of cow's milk for their ice cream, I would think this was a satire piece from "The Onion."
 
I can't believe anyone with a brain gives PETA any credibility whatsoever.

There seems a definate need to bring back the T Rex.  Survival should require one have some sense of reality.

Sea Kitten?  Light It Up

PETA leaders are sure on a good one because they come up with the most ridiculous ideas. I can't believe so many people support that group. I'll still go fishing.....Now I come to think of it, what should people calling fishing now? Sea Kittening? I think if I used that term people would think I was on something.....pshhhhh

I never saw a fish with Hair. Well at least not growing on it.
I did like Chris's video on the red bellies.

Guys, before we get carried away here, I would like to point out that there is a positive side to PETA: the whackos somehow managed to recruit a bunch of pretty girls and talked them into stripping naked in public.

There is a bunch of photographic evidence of the success of those efforts which I can't post here due to forum rules.

Perhaps, I should start a competing organization.  I bet I can get a few aspiring actresses to cooperate if there is publicity involved.
