    This may not be an appropriate comment, but if it is I would appreciate your views on this, written by an angler.

    The experience of pain depends on the functions of a complex, enlarged cerebral hemispheres. The functional activity of frontal lobe regions of the brain is closely tied to pain.

    These regions do not exist in fish. If the cerebral hemispheres in a mammal is destroyed, a comatose vegetative state results. If the same thing happens to a fish the fish’s behaviour is quite normal because the simple behaviours of which a fish is capable depend mainly on the brain stem and the spinal cord.

    A mammal’s existence is dominated by the cerebral hemispheres, but a fish is a brainstem-dominated organism.

    This proves, once and for all, that fish do not feel pain
