There was a backlash on social media about this. The owner said he just wanted to educate people about fish. He apologized and said he did not anticipate the negative reactions.
The rink, which opened inside Space World amusement park in Kitakyushu, southern Japan on November 12, created the unusual fish display in an apparent bid to educate visitors about marine life.
However, the park faced a barrage of criticism on social media, with images of the open-mouthed fish beneath the ice prompting widespread accusations of animal cruelty.
