Urge Long John Silver’s and Captain D’s to Sell Vegan Fish!

UN LAB Middleware Label: Title Ends


Update: July 20, 2021
Exciting news! After years of pressure from PETA and after hearing from over 35,000 kind supporters like you, Long John Silver’s is now testing vegan seafood at five locations throughout California and Georgia. The new options are made by fish-free seafood brand Good Catch, and options consist of vegan fish fillets and crabless crab cakes. They’ll be available for a limited time at the locations below. If you live near one, please go out and show your support.

  • 3801 Ming Ave., Bakersfield, California
  • 406 W. Shaw Ave., Clovis, California
  • 7228 Stockton Blvd., Sacramento, California
  • 1805 N. Slappey Blvd., Albany, Georgia
  • 52 Bullsboro Dr., Newnan, Georgia (near Atlanta)

We hope this is just the first step in getting these vegan options added to menus nationwide, so please let Long John Silver’s know you’re eager to try them! Thanks for helping to secure this net win for fish and crabs.

Vegan options are turning up at restaurant chains across the country—from vegan burgers at Carl’s Jr. and Burger King to vegan chicken and beef tacos at El Pollo Loco and Del Taco  to vegan ice cream at Dairy Queen and Baskin-Robbins. Yet seafood chains Long John Silver’s and Captain D’s still aren’t offering vegan fish or other animal-free seafood.

More fish are killed for food each year than all other animals combined. Without any legal protection from cruel treatment, these intelligent, complex animals are impaled, crushed, suffocated, or cut open and gutted, all while they’re fully conscious. On aquafarms, thousands of fish are confined to net or mesh enclosures, which are filthy and cramped. The fish in such operations may suffer from parasitic infections, disease, and debilitating injuries.

Fish, lobsters, crabs, and other sea animals are complex beings who feel pain and fear and just want to be left alone to form relationships, care for their young, and live as they please. Delicious vegan seafood already exists—including Gardein’s Golden Fishless Filets and Crabless Cakes, Plant Based Seafood Co.’s vegan shrimp, and so much more. It would be easy for Long John Silver’s and Captain D’s to add vegan seafood to their menus and appeal to the millions looking for kinder food options.
