Welcome to animals, nature, veganism. We are raised in a society where animal captivity, exploitation and cruelty are normalized to the point where most do not question the morality or injustice of it all.
Through no fault of our own, we are (often) raised contributing to animal injustice and to believe that it is ‘normal’ to participate in acts such as consuming animal products or visiting captive wildlife - which should not to be confused with ‘common’, as it is by percentage ‘common’ to participate in anti-animal acts, but it is by no means normal.
In the words of Optimus Prime, freedom is the right of all sentient beings.

I am becoming a vegetarian. I like fishing because I find it nice just being able to sit and enjoy the sounds of nature, also it's exciting when you finally get a bite! But I don't like the fact the in order to catch the fish you have to yank a hook into their mouth :( Also I always put the fish back into their home. My question is what is your opinion on fishing for sport and recreation?
I don’t support it at all!!
Catch and release fishing is cruelty disguised as “sport.” Studies show that fish who are caught and then returned to the water suffer such severe physiological stress that they often die of shock. When fish are handled, the protective coating on their bodies is disturbed. These and other injuries make fish easy targets for predators once they are returned to the water.
Fish feel pain because, like all animals, they have nerves. Hooked fish struggle out of fear and physical pain, desperate to breathe. Even though fish don’t have the same brain structures that humans do—fish do not have a neocortex, for example Dr. Ian Duncan reminds us that we “have to look at behaviour and physiology,” not just anatomy. “It’s possible for a brain to evolve in different ways,” he says. “That’s what is happening in the fish line. It’s evolved in some other ways in other parts of the brain to receive pain.”
Once fish are hauled out of their aqueous environment and into ours, they begin to suffocate, and their gills often collapse. In commercial fishing, fish’s swim bladders can rupture because of the sudden change in pressure.
Fishing is far from a harmless pastime. Please try alternative activities, such as hiking, camping, and canoeing.
Spot on as always! ^
