Cruel Fish Slaughter

A new undercover investigation released by Mercy For Animals reveals the reality of a fish slaughter facility in Mesquite, Texas.

As a result of an undercover investigation, Mercy for Animals (MFA) has released a new video that provides a glimpse into “Catfish Corner,” a fish slaughtering facility. The video captures workers pulling skin and tearing heads off of live fish, dozens of fish crammed into buckets, and fish being left out of water to suffocate. MFA has made complaints to the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office on the basis of cruelty to animals, but the DA’s Office has declined to file charges. Approximately 8.4 billion fish are killed each year for food in the US, with Texas being a leading producer of farm-raised catfish.
