Something’s Fishy in the News

A new study funded by the Norwegian government has concluded that worms wriggling around on a fishhook aren’t doing it because they feel pain. And no, they’re not doing the Lambada either (it’s forbidden, remember?). Don’t forget though, that fish do feel pain, at least according to a study done in Scotland a couple of years ago during which they injected bee venom and acetic acid into some poor trout’s lips. Apparently the FDA (Fish Drug Association) hadn’t approved Botox yet. The conclusion? It’s cool to go fishing all you want as long as you don’t catch anything, which lets most anglers off the hook, so to speak.
