An estimated 3,500 seals are killed in Scotland alone each year as they are considered a threat to farmed salmon.

Almost 50% of fish consumed as food worldwide are now intensively raised on fish farms (known as aquaculture).

Long-line fishing practices kill approximately 300,000 albatrosses and other sea birds each year.

Fish have a nervous system and pain receptors like all other animals.
