Skating Above 5000 Fishes!!

A Japanese amusement park, which proposed to customers gliding on ice as they watched 5000 silhouettes of frozen fish underfoot, closed the skating rink this Sunday on a spate of criticism. 

The manager of Space World, located in Kitakyushu (southwest), had opened this unusual site on November 12, but soon the concept was considered sinister.  

Koji Shibata, a company spokesman, told the AFP news agency that the animals were already dead when they were purchased and that they were considered unfit for consumption. 

"We wanted customers to feel the sensation of skating over the sea, but after we received the criticism, we decided to stop," said manager Toshimi Takeda. 

The ice will be melted, an operation that could take a week, followed by a ceremony to honor fish.
