Speciecist at its finest

Attempting to save fish by catching fish is the dumbest solution ever presented. I cannot believe the level of intelligence of the producers that cannot see the simple cause and effect of the consumption of marine animals, who are just as sentient and capable of feeling pain as the ones they try to save.
