This is a Buddhist country, we must not allow to kill animals. our religious leaders must stop this by passing an act in the parliament to stop killing animals.

Bigger fish getting away with murder

Its a shame how they display the fish on the bare ground where people walk and spit. Why cannot the fisheries department build cement slab tables, so that the fish are displayed hygienically in a clean environment.

#Fish.- Have you visited fish markets in other parts of the world to make such an idiotic comment? Yes in Africa its like this, but not in developed countries. It does not cost millions to avoid this. After all we all consume these. It little cleanliness goes a long way to avoid disease.
