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.
