    I have never understood why people do not view a fish as being an animal. A fish might not be warm-blooded, but that doesn’t mean it is not an animal. Going way back to my elementary school science classes, we learned that everything on the planet can fit into three basic categories: plant, animal, or mineral. A fish is neither a plant nor a mineral; it is an animal. I know that’s not the point of this post or the linked article, but I have always been struck by Catholics saying they don’t eat meat on Fridays but then eating fish (meat).
