Angry Fish

Kurt Cobain once sang, “It’s OK to eat fish, cause they don’t have any feels.” He must have been on to something because not even the Humane Society, which never met a slo-mo video of an abused animal it couldn’t set to sad music, has nothing to say on the topic of fish welfare. But one brave researcher at Case Western Reserve University decided to study the issue. He found that fish become aggressive when kept in tanks that are too small or sparsely decorated. Take that, Kurt.
