Fish deserve better treatment based on data on their emotional lives

GR:  Evidence shows that living creatures have varying degrees of sentience and intelligence. They play, they fear, they learn, and they try to survive.  All are responding to their surroundings by adjusting their form and behavior over successive generations.  As they evolve, they change their environments and create the Earth biosphere on which we depend.  Given time, it seems likely that other species will develop intelligence that matches or exceeds our own. Thus, for practical and ethical reasons, we should protect the creatures that furnish our home and share our existence.
