STRONG POINTS

  • This happened after the aquarium started giving them cheaper fish due to rising costs.

A video of penguins and otters refusing to eat in an aquarium in Japan has gone incredibly viral online. The reason penguins and otters don’t eat their meals is that they are now being offered cheaper fish due to rising costs. According to AFP, the Hakone-en aquarium in the Kanagawa region of central Japan has ditched some of its traditional, more expensive horse mackerel in favor of cheaper mackerel.

The menu change was not received with a very good response from the penguins and otters as they completely refuse to eat. In the short clip which has gone viral online with over 15 million views, the penguins can be seen turning their beaks away when food is offered to them.

“They first take it in their mouth, but then they decide they don’t like it and drop it,” aquarium director Hiroki Shimamoto told AFP. He suspects they don’t like the size of their meals, which are bigger than their standard fare. “They sense something is wrong,” Shimamoto added.

“The problem is even more acute in the otters in the aquarium, which uniformly rejected the cheapest fish,” Shimamoto continued.
