>Why is it socially acceptable to kill animals in the wild when they are
>a fish? I've never quite 'got' the concept of fishing in National Parks.

it's not just limited to national parks, i have fished in the ocean too.

i suppose you can put it two ways.
fishing is a sport (much like rock climbing) you get a bit of a high from catching something, especally if its something big enough to eat, much like you get a high from topping out on a climb. i'm not veggo, and eating what i kill, and only killing what i need to me seems perfectly acceptable. its not like i go out and catch 20 fish and let them all die. if i catch something i dont want or is too small back she goes.
and the second way....
Humans are hunters by nature, killing things is something that we do, we kill it and eat it, some people go out "pigging" and 'roo shooting' i dont think the slaughter is limited to fish. i do think tho, if you kill it, it needs to be used.

and before the question pops up, yes, if i lived on a farm and had my own livestock, i would slaughter my own sheepslashcow for sustenance, and i know, i think they are cute too... but tasty as well :)
