From the somewhat-unhinged animal lovers at PETA who brought you Save the Whales and human "seal hunts" comes Fish Amnesty Day, the animal rights organization's protest against National Hunting and Fishing Day. PETA urges seafood enthusiasts to think of fish as "sea kittens" in a public relations move intended to render the traditionally cold and scaly fish somehow soft and cuddly.
The organization's re-positioning of the fish alongside traditional pets like cats and dogs is meant to encourage near-vegetarians who still haven't given up seafood to go all the way. Still, it would be hilarious to see activists walking fish on leashes, or draping puppies with scaly costumes, to make their point. Somehow, I doubt the "sea kittens" campaign is going to make any dedicated fishermen put away their poles and lures.
