Animal rights have come a long way over the last century, providing, of course, we're not talking about fish. While other vertebrates have slowly been recognized as social, feeling, even sentient beings, fish remain good for three things: owning, catching and eating.

But recent scientific discoveries are starting to change the way fish are regarded: Some recognize human faces, use tools, care for their young, and even like to be pet. This hour, we talk about the surprising new research on fish and hear why we aught to change our attitudes towards, as author Jonathan Balcombe puts it, "our underwater cousins."
