"Live" fish sold in tanks

Miss Needle | Feb 2, 2009 07:48 AM

I was in a Chinatown over the weekend and popped into a store to do some grocery shopping. I was at the seafood section when I saw these tanks full of live fish. I was shocked to see one tank where there were about six fish there with all fish having huge chunks of flesh missing from their body. A couple of them had significant portions of their skeleton exposed. All of the fish were alive (barely). WTF was that? Were the fish diseased? Or were they handled in such a way hunks of flesh were torn off?
