Feeding Fish on Shabbat

Rabbi Chaim Tabasky

6 Av 5765
Question
Are you allowed to feed fish on Shabbat. What if a fish looks like it’s sick and about to die? What if you forgot to feed them before Shabbat, can you let a small child feed them?
Answer
The owner of the fish, or anyone responsible for their care, may feed them on Shabbat.
