La Mer ends using Fishes in Dublin Airport

Posted in General news by ALib on the July 28th, 2009

Plastic Fishes instead for La Mer

Crème de la Mer has for the second time in 3 years being forced to remove animals from their store in Dublin Airport due to starvation or suffocation.

Three years ago the Animal Rights group the Alliance For Animal Rights (AFAR) reported that seahorses were left to die through suffocation in tanks and then replaced with new seahorses.
AFAR were informed that the tank was filled 4 times before Crème de la Mer stopped replacing the dead seahorses with live seahorses and after a demonstration at the airport.

This year the tanks in the same store were the site of starving fishes. These animals were “just covered up and replaced by live fish” according to AFAR.


Crème de la Mer, who is owned by Estee Lauder, has finally stopped buying fishes in this store. Instead of the reported fishes eating other fishes, visitors to the store or Dublin airport will see plastic fish.

How many animals died here for decorational purposes is hard to say but it is another example of how weak the law is as nobody will be prosecuted or jailed for these acts.

The exploitation of sea animals and other animals as “pets” or decoration is widespread in Ireland and the rest of the world. Just go into a number of restaurants, shops, businesses or homes and the chances are you’ll see a fish in a tank, a bird in a

cage or a reptile behind glass.

Please do not buy animals as “pets”, decoration or for any other reason and encourage others to do likewise. These industries continue the mindset that non humans are property to be bought and sold.
And property, as most people believe, is not sentient and may be used as we see fit and disposed of when we wish. After all, in a speciesist world, what’s the law going to do?
