About the Holiday

Fish Amnesty Day is a day to recognize fish as living animals with rights and in need of protection just the same as other vertebrates. In addition to protection of fish its purpose is also to convert near vegetarians who still eat seafood to take the final step and become fully vegetarian.

This holiday was created by PETA in 1997 to coincide with, and counteract, National Hunting and Fishing Day.[1]
