5. I did
when I first went veg; my "logic" was that at least fish got to live a normal life until the time they got caught; as opposed to farm animals who didn't live normal lives at all.

Mostly it was a stepping stone for me, and kind of a " holding onto/staying closer to 'normal' " sort of tactic. I rarely ate fish as an omnivore, and I didn't eat much more when I went veg, but it was a psychological comfort that I could eat fish if I was in a restaurant and didn't have any good options in terms of veg food.

It can be a scary decision to go veg, and dive into a very different way of eating.

As far as long-term veg*ns who still eat fish/seafood, I don't have any idea why that would be.

:hi:
