    It was an emphasis on how ridiculous the picture looks.

    Not "sects", but schools of jurisprudence.

    Yes, that's correct. The above link is from a Shafi'i scholar - the Shafi'is say that even if it looks like a dog or pig, it is halal...

    Ah I see.

    I know of 4 schools: Hanafi,Shafei, Hanbali and Maliki and the opinions of these 4 scholars differed but then taking one hadith into consideration the decision has been taken,

    The Hanafi are of the opinion that eating crabs is unlawful. They (the Hanafi) claim that from all the creatures of the sea, only fish is lawful. Al Kassany (a Hanafi scholar) said: 'All creatures of the sea are unlawful to eat except the fish if it is not floating (after death) on the water'.

    The Maliki believe that eating crabs is lawful. Al Kharshy (a Maliki scholar) said: 'And any sea animal (is lawful) even if it stays for a long time on land. This means for them that the Meytah of sea animals (dead without being slaughtered) is lawful for us to eat regardless of whether that animal was killed or was found dead. There is no difference in this rule between an animal whose life on land is long like the sea turtle, the sea frog, or the crab, or the one whose life on land is short like the whale'.

    The Shafi’e have two different opinions but their most preponderant opinion is that it is unlawful to eat crabs. Al Nawawi said: 'The frog and the crab are forbidden and this is the opinion of the majority of scholars'.

    The Hanbali are of the opinion that the crab is lawful.

    Ibn Qudamah said: 'Imam Ahmad said, ‘There is no objection to eating crabs’. Someone asked: ‘Should it be slaughtered?’ Imam Ahmad replied: ‘No’'.

    It's not as simple as people suggest.

    Are fish herbivores or omnivores?

    In Islam, you cannot consume animals that eat other animals, let alone pork.
    Yeah but we are in England not any Islamic countries.

    He said "in Islam" not "in England".

    Jeez! We live in a world where by nuances are no longer noticed.

    Obviously if you do care if you took the time to be part of this thread, quote me and reply. If you or anyone else don't care, don't look at this thread.

    Simple.

    So what? Fish eat other fish. Once digested, it is no longer fish (or any other animal), but a series of amino acids, and other complex molecules such as sugars, fats and vitamins/minerals.
    This. It is another case of media distorting science. Aside from some very specific religious views this doesn't really affect anyone. These fish will be completely the same as any other fish- once the fish food has undergone digestion there is nothing pig like abut it. It may not be natural but neither is a significant part of human life- selective breeding, farming, domestication are all unnatural but they hardly need labeling. They have labelled it fish because that is what it is.

    It is stupid to call for it to be labeled as containing pig because it doesn't. In terms of matter we live in a closed system where organic material is recycled through food chains. If someone decides they aren't willing to eat anything which has ever been part of species X then they need to be ready to starve, considering the age of life it is impossible to find organic material which hasn't passed through the food chain multiple times.

    Since the amount of water in the hydrological cycle has remained pretty much constant throughout the time life existed on Earth, almost all water on the planet was once part of an animal.

    Probably a few tens of thousands of molecules per glass of tap water was once part of Jesus.
