LaFollette, Hugh (2017) Nagel-ing worries about fish sentience. Animal Sentience 13(6)
Michael L. Woodruff, Consciousness in teleosts: There is something it feels like to be a fish
Woodruff (2017) argues that teleosts’ more sophisticated behaviors make sense only if they are sentient. Moreover, their neuroanatomy, although different from mammalian, is sufficiently complex to support sentience. I answer some potential objections to Woodruff’s argument, and try to trace its moral significance. In so doing, I briefly address Birch’s (2017) target article as well.
