Please really think about it first. I had some fish tonight and I really regret it. I figured it wasn't like the vegetarian police were going to knock down my door and for the most part I would still eat vegetarian; I just wouldn't be able to call myself vegetarian anymore. Well, it was definately not as good as I remember it to be and now I feel guilty and my stomach is really upset. At least the good news is that any time I see fish from now on, it will remind me of how I feel right now. Fortunately I have Pepto Bismol in the house. Never again will I make this mistake again. Anyways, I just wanted to forwarn anyone else of making the same mistake. It is so not worth it.

A while ago I had a craving for tuna. I didnt have any but the craving was there for a while, dont know why?. I dont go anywhere where they sell fish/meat now if I can avoid it.

I accidently ate a 'meat' sausage roll over xmas. Tried not to feel sick, but it did worry me!!.

I had some fish meat once by accident. Tasted awful, but I didn't get sick.

I think some experimentation is good if you have doubts ( well my thread on that is till up).

Somewhat more recently ( a few weeks ago) I had some fish in a sauce and didn't notice. In fact I didn't know until I read the ingredients on the bottle.

I also have had meat every once in a while by accident ( My feeling is those who havn't accidently eaten meat havn't been veg long enough or never eat food prepared by someone else) and it never makes me sick.

Maybe it's because of the tiny amounts since I assume if you prepared some fish meat to eat, you'd be having much more. Like for instance I have read your body may respond negatively if you start eating meat after not eating any for a long time.

Having spoken to a few ex veg*ns now and people who have accidently consumed meat, this seems not to happen to most people.

Whatever your reason to decide to eat fish meat whether it's due to nutrition beliefs, your situation etc, I'd think you should do some basic research first.

Plus the way I see it, if the ethical vegetarian police go knocking your door down, they might be considered hypocrites since dairy and eggs require animal death to be produced. Only vegans have the right to fully be critical of eating fish meat.

We aren't going to get into this here, but dairy and eggs don't "require" death to be produced.

Require? no. Cause? yes.

The males from the hen-hatchery's don't just go fly away. They get the privilege of living their 10 minute lives at the bottom of a dumpster. But it's more fun to ignore those deaths and pretend eggs come from a happy place - all for an omelet.

The people are most into fishkeeping also have a tendency to love fishing it seems. Even weirder is over at monsterfishkeepers, they would go fishing for the same fish that they are keeping as pets. Only the arowana fishing gets some negative reactions over there.

Here look at these great examples of species (fill in blank) dangling on a hook and line looking terrfied, injured and suffering. So other posters will write nice things about the fish. How large and beautiful they are for isntance.

I cannot get how one can be concerned about keeping these fish thriving in captivity, be concerned about unethical fishkeeping aspects and then turn a blind eye to the suffering of the same fish dangling on a fishing line.

I have just ignored that forum when I was there because I don't think it's appriopriate to flame a topic in a board devoted to that topic, plus the pictures were distrubing to me. I have mentioned the irony of the situation elsewhere on another forum, but didn't get much response.

To a lot of people with aquariums (a lot, not all) fish are ornaments, not pets.

Or to get eggs and milk from a cruelty free source. Like my mate Charlie. Pepper the goat and Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick, Titch and Doris the hens are all quite happy, especially as Dave Dee has his little harem. Gets frustrated when he's not allowed to play.

There are ways you know, if you can be bothered to find out,

After five years of being vegetarian I decided to try steamed clams to see if I still enjoyed them. I did, but went back to being vegetarian after trying them. I had no ill affects.

My wife has recently had to reincorporate fish into her diet because she can no longer eat wheat and soy and has a medical condition requiring protein. She has been able to do so without ill affects.
