Default Scallops

Hello

Just came across something interesting. I have lost count but I guess it's been already a year or two since I have become a vegetarian. I'm not vegan so I do consume dairy products and milk. This was driven from the desire to not cause harm and suffering in animals.

At the beginning I thought eating shell fishes are considered to be okay, until I realize that even scallops have eyes! Yikes.

There are also tons of videos on YouTube with scallops swimming.

If you still eat fish or shellfish, then you are not a vegetarian. You are a pescatarian.
