IRVINE, Calif. -- Animal activists want a California roadside memorial sign to honor fish killed during a container truck crash.
    
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals volunteer Dina Kourda told Irvine's street maintenance chief the sign would remind drivers that fish value their lives and feel pain.
    
About 1,600 pounds of saltwater bass died on Oct. 11 when the truck hauling them to market got into a three-way crash.
    
The Los Angeles Times says Kourda's letter acknowledges roadside memorials traditionally honor humans, but she hopes an exception will be made.
    
Irvine spokesman Craig Reem says there won't be a fish memorial.
