That's a bit like saying there isn't much difference between killing a fly and a stag-beetle. Pigs have a lot of fat and are, generally speaking, large, strong animals. And to kill a fish I would try and use the most humane way possible, (rendering the fish unconscious first), which wouldn't be to club it to death.
Also, if I thought like that I wouldn't have any qualms about killing larger fish, like tuna. But there is obviously a difference in difficulty between holding a sardine down and holding a massive salmon or something like that down.
Well, there isn't much difference at all in killing a fly and a stag beetle.
Don't try to pretend there is much difference between killing a fish and a pig, you know full well I was discussing the moral perspective as thats what your thread was asking with your question, "Do you think you could bring yourself to kill your own food..."
Now you're twisting and wriggling, quibbling over the semantic definitions of 'ability', taken now to mean 'physical ability', when all along it was pretty clear you were implying that humanity should have some sort of moral impediment to prevent them slaughtering cuddly animals with cute faces and sentience.
I'll cover physical ability anyway. Humans have evolved large brains to make a judgement on the best way to kill an animal depending on what it is. If it's a fish, they can just whack it on the side of a boat. If it's a small pig they have trapped in a pen, they can hold it down and stick a knife in it, if its a large wild pig with tusks, they can chase it on horseback and spear it, or bring it down with a rifle bullet.
Out of interest, what humane method do you use to render fish unconscious without the use of force?
