At Space World in Kitakyushu, Japan, fish are literally frozen into the ice of a skating rink.
The theme park has been forced to shut down after the frozen fish sparked outrage, The New York Times reports.
Space World called the "Aquarium on Ice" an "unprecedented attraction," which is technically true. It featured 5,000 dead fish, including mackerel, sprats and rays. It announced the closure on its website on Sunday.

We seriously take to heart a lot of various opinions, such as 'you shouldn't use those creatures or in entertainment or events,' or, 'poor fish.'
The park's general manager told Japanese broadcaster NHK, "We thought that we could provide an opportunity for visitors to enjoy ice skating while learning about various kinds of fish."
That response stunned some social media users.
Fish given a memorial service
The ice will be melted and the fish will have a religious memorial service, and may be turned into fertilizer.
A spokesperson told the Japanese newspaper The Asahi Shimbun the fish were already dead when they were frozen, but rumors spread that the fish were actually frozen alive.
"We should have explained more," the spokesperson said.
You have no soul to plan such an event to begin with.
The park's initial photos of the rink on Facebook included captions like "I am d...d...drowning." Those posts were later deleted, CNN reports.
This may be the first ice rink with fish, but CNET reports Japan has long had an ice aquarium. The Kori no Suizokukan boasts hundreds of fish frozen in ice, and has been open since 2002.
