Yea or Nay? Should Humans Teach Fish to “Catch” Themselves?

Did you know that humans are teaching fish to catch themselves by making a sound that the fish hear and associate with feeding? The scientists hope fish, when they get to market size, will come into nets when they hear the sounds again. Then, humans will get them and eat them.

I don’t feel good about this, because the poor fish think they’re going to get food. In fact, they are just going to become food for someone else. I think they should put a stop to this and let the fish go free.

To me, teaching fish to catch themselves is wrong, and I say “Nay, humans!” What about you? Vote below!
