I have read an article here in DK, and it was about a english scientist who had found out that fish don't feel pain, but only reacts to the surroundings!

Have any of you heard anything about the teory??

Kom med et hurtigt svar.....

he means he has known that fish can feel pain.
the new study says they can't, because they are missing the parts of their brains that feel pain, but I think they can

ok, pain is an ambiguous term. for humans it goes beyond sensory stimuli it also involves greater psychological processes.

IMO, this thread is highly controversial. I believe this is more of a philosophical dilemma and how the word pain is applied and defined.

They dont feel pain, they rely on the survival instinct to react to different situations. There is no reason for them to feel pain so what would be the purpose? Evolution is based on the need to adapt and there is no need for fish to feel pain so why would they?

...so if they don't feel pain and rely on survival instinct, how would they know something just took a bite out of them?...i mean unless fish have some sort of "spider sense" they wouldn't know if something bit them....i think instinct and feelings of pain go hand in hand, that's how you get reaction

yes I agree with you, I feel this is the main fuel for the controversy as well

I would define as extremely unpleasureable physical state, I personally dont get much mental distress from pain, but I am an athelete that has been there broke that so I may have gotten used to it, it does suck when its cold and rainy though, I feel every broken and sprained bone then :sad:
