Sir Paul McCartney is calling on fish-eating 'vegetarians' to give up all seafood for Earth Day on Tuesday (22May08).
The meat-free former Beatle has issued a statement urging the world to go veggie for the greenest day of the year - and he's also targeting those who call themselves vegetarians, and then eat fish.
MCCartney wants to remind everyone that the commercial fishing industry is killing off fish species which are vital to the environment.
He says, "Unfortunately, many people seem to think that vegetarians eat fish, but this is not so.
"When you consider the overfishing, the marine pollution, and the huge damage to our precious oceans that are caused by commercial fishing, it becomes obvious that a (complete) vegetarian lifestyle would greatly improve our environment and help to save our oceans."
