I was on the internet the other night (on unleashed of course), when i saw an article in japan. in the end i read about this resteraunt which takes fish theyve caught recently from a tank, wrap its head in a wet cloth (not its body) and takes it to the fryer, deep fries its body and serves it!!! while it alive, head up
reply please!!!!

That's disgusting, but it doesn't surprise me.

Thats so very sad sad Some of the food practices from other cultures can be so shocking. It's hard to imagine that they will ever change, but we can hope, and try our best to spread the message.

Yes, lots of places in Japan do this.

They also scale them while they are alive, cook them while they are alive, and they eat them while they are gasping for air.

Also, some use the fish, cut the flesh off, making sure they do not get the organs and eat the flesh and put the fish back in the tank, and let it swim around.

Oh my god
I'm going to Japan with my family next year, and Mum has already said that she doesn't want to eat fish there because it could be dolphin (we watched The Cove).
