I don't know about anybody else but a fish doesn't make a good pet. There's literally nothing you can do with it except watch it swim around and maybe feed it every now and then. That's not fun, that's about as boring as it gets. At least with something like a turtle you can take it out of the tank and let it run around on the floor. Dogs and cats are fluffy for a reason, they're meant to be pets. Fish are meant to be eaten, that's why they're so delicious. Just don't get mad at me if you have a fish for a pet and I'm fishing in your aquarium. I'm doing what the good lord intended.
TL;DR Britons are keeping more fish as pets than cats and dogs and that's unnatural.
