  • size
  • preferred habitat
  • regulations
  • commercial fishery information
  • recreational fishery information

Assur abolished cannibalism

Humans are a predatory species. We are the top predators on this planet. We prey on plants. We prey on animals. We prey on fish, mammals, mollusks, and on the other predators in the seas. Although humans don’t generally eat a lot of insects, we prey on insect products like honey and silk, and the shells of beetles that we use for dyes.
We prey on everything including other humans. How widely cannibalism was practiced amongst our ancestors isn't clearly known, but the abolition of cannibalism was one of Assur's legendary deeds. Cannibalism has been universally suppressed so we don't eat other people, but we still prey upon their products, their labor, their lands, and their resources.
