Published in the NY Daily News 11/29/2004):

Yonkers: To Voice Michael Jimenez: PETA supporters do not expect you to be a human host for biting mosquitoes or rats; you are entitled to establish a personal comfort zone.

However, fish have a pain-producing nervous system like you do; for that reason, they are entitled to establish a comfort zone, too.

Is the criterion for compassion and respect based on how much they look like us or whether they can walk and talk? I think not.
